Chavez Status Check

Hugo Chavez urges Venezuelans to forgo the "gringa" holiday (otherwise known as Halloween):
"Families go and begin to disguise their children as witches," Chavez said. "That is contrary to our ways." . . . [H]e urged parents to think about whether it was appropriate to dress up their children as part of a foreign custom, calling it "the game of terror." He said that is part of the U.S. culture -- "terrorism, putting fear into other nations, putting fear into their own people."
