Well it was on the cards but I heard Chavez has just died.
BBC News - Venezuela's Hugo Chavez dead at 58
Its hard to comment on this, in some ways I really admired what he did for the poor. If only more of the worlds leaders were like him in that regard.

One less scumbag - 60 years to the day since Stalin died too.
Chavez ruined his country, shut down or arrested any press that dared criticise him and intimidated other political parties with murder & violence. Crime has exploded under his mismanagement - Venezuela has the world's 5th highest murder rate (more than the US & EU combined) & the country has become a safe haven for drug cartels and Columbia's FARC guerrillas.
But like Stalin, because he was nominally 'left wing' he gets the usual free pass from our naive fellow travellers.
