"When I talk to women in the DRC and Congolese refugees in Rwanda, they share heart-wrenching stories of violence carried out against them and their families, instilling fear and doubt in the government. Many have been repeatedly attacked and/or displaced. This environment of fear impacts generations."

-- Russ Feingold, U.S. Special Envoy to the Great Lakes region in Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has died at age 58 following a 2-year battle with cancer. He first appeared on the national scene as the leader of the failed 1992 coup, but would later return as a presidential candidate, winning the election in 1998.

I'll save you the trouble of reading the article right now (but click it anyway): Cuba promotes little known bureaucrat to VP slot, putting him in line for the presidency in 2018. He keeps his head down, tows the party line and loves the Beatles. Expect anything from him in five years.
