Food For Thought

During a trip to Caracas, Venezuela, United States Ambassador William Brownfield got more than he bargained for. Apparently, there are a number of citizens in Venezuela who support President Hugo Chavez's claim that the U.S. is conspiring to overthrow him. When Ambassador Brownfield visited areas of the city of Caracas, his motorcade was repeatedly bombarded with a wide assortment of fruits and miscellaneous vegetables from protesters repeating the phrase "Go home!" Although whether or not our government is trying to oust President Chavez isn't clear, one thing is ... Venezuela obviously has no shortage of produce, and should be treated as such in the future when they come to us with their hand out for food donations and financial aid.
