#4 "Maybe Hugo is alive" > a restaurant patron-friend of mine believes Hugo may already be dead, or else is possibly on his deathbed, which IHO explains why Cuba's pro-Hugo Uncle Fidel Castro made a sudden reappearance in the Medias a few days ago - he also opined that Hugo's passing is a great opportunity for the USA = Bammer Admin to re-establish cordial ties + trade wid Oil-State Venezuela. IHO THE US NEEDS TO HELP VENEZUELA BE SAVED FROM ITSELF LIKE CHINA-WARY BUT STARVING NORTH KOREA???
