In honor of Hugo Chavez and Woody Allen....

Starting in September, Hugo Chavez is going to be shifting Venezuela's clocks forward by a half-hour (to ensure "a more fair distribution of the sunrise" according to Reuters).

An hour I can understand -- but a half-hour?

How long is it going to be before Chavez delivers this kind of speech?

Fish, barrel- may I introduce you to gun. Maybe you should worry more about crazy leaders who actually have the ability to inflict major disasters on the world, like Bush and Cheney.

Now we just wait for the local headline:
"Chavez cures Seasonal Affective Disorder"!

I see the Newfie-Venezuelan jokes have already popped up online.

(As time-zone geeks and CBC-listeners know, Newfoundland time is also a half-hour offset from its neighbor time zones, at GMT-3.5. The new Venezuelan time will be GMT-4.5)

I am still troubled by the inequity of the eastern Venezuelans receiving their light first. Is there nothing Boss Hugo can do to remedy this injustice?

What about the classic _Twilight Zone_ episode "The Mirror" (with Peter Falk)?
