Chavez To Visit Castro For His Birthday

Reports Swiss Info:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said he would fly to Havana to share birthday cake with Fidel Castro, who was reported on Saturday to be walking, talking and working a bit in the clearest signs yet the ailing Cuban leader was recovering.

Chavez, Castro's close leftist ally, said he would give the bearded revolutionary a dagger and a cup carried by 19th century liberation hero Simon Bolivar as gifts for his 80th birthday on Sunday.

Way to ruin the surprise Chavez! What a jerk. No, but seriously, a cup? What a great gift. Why not get him a sweater or some socks. And, being socialists, to be fair shouldn't Chavez get something for everyone else in Cuba?
