Chavez & Fox spat
The Mexican government plans to summon the Venezuelan ambassador to explain President Hugo Chavez's recent remarks. In case you missed it, he called President Vicente Fox of Mexico a puppy of the USA. Not a dog, mind you, just a puppy. By all accounts Fox is fuming.
Not that anybody else cares, mind you. Pres. Fox will leave office next August and his people are cheerfully looting anything that isn't red hot or nailed down. You have to make your money while you can and this is the last chance many of them will ever have to do a thorough pillage. The chances of PAN getting elected to the presidency ever again are about nil - at least in my lifetime.
