Complex Chavez Recovery

In August, he turned 86. Hopefully he has many productive years ahead. His intellect remains acute. His perceptiveness is keen.

His knowledge of vital issues is impressive. His honesty and integrity are impeccable. His forthrightness is noteworthy. He and Chavez mean so much to so many.
