      *In honor of the Venezuelan president�s wise decision to give asylum to
      Edward Snowden tonight, here�s a little tribute to him (and his late friend
      and Comandante, Chavecito), from Russia, with love:*





      * Ska-P�s �El Libertador�, sung (in Spanish!) by a group of young Russians
      at the New Opera Theatre in Moscow. This concert took place on July 2.*

      * And yes, I�m happy about this. Even before the asylum request was
      received, Nicol�s Maduro was showing himself a real Mensch, and disposed to
      grant asylum to the NSA leaker/whistleblower because, in his words, Snowden
      had �contributed to
      blowing the lid off his government�s insanely excessive wiretapping habits.*

      *Now, to get Snowden on the next plane to Caracas, probably with some kind
      of official Russian documents, since the US government has withdrawn his
      passport. I don�t know how it will be done, but here�s a chance for
      Pooty-Poot to make himself useful to humanity, too.*
