If he could turn back time

Usually Hugo Chavez is kinda scary and ass-like, but this time he's just comical and ass-like. What's up now is that he decided that the standard time zones separated by sixty minutes were some manifestation of U.S. imperialism and that they should create their own time zone 4:30 behind Greenwich Mean Time. I guess that's because Newfoundland and South Australia are such paragons of socialist revolutionary fervor. The time was supposed to change today, just eight days after making the announcement, but apparently screwing with the clocks is something that takes a little more preparation, and they've pushed the time change back to January.

When I think of half-hour time zones it's usually India that comes to mind.

Messing with time zones, daylight savings time, all this stuff is just stupid anyway. I wonder if Chavez sees the parallels between his meaningless change and GWB's meaningless change earlier this year.
