VENEZUELA : Intrigue Surrounds Chavez's Return From Cuban Cancer Treatment.


     "He is about to die. He will hang on long enough to win re-election, then die. He is cured and will rule for decades. He doesn't have cancer and faked the whole thing.
      Welcome to Venezuela's presidential election campaign, a swirl of intrigue and conspiracy theories over the health of Hugo Chavez that has thrown the race wide open and stoked hope and dread on both sides."
AND..."It is a bizarre and at times morbid saga that has turned this nation of 28 million people into amateur oncologists. Instead of debates about poverty, crime, inflation or how best to spend oil revenues, the pre-election climate resembles an episode of the (USA) TV series House, in which characters argue over a patient's symptoms and prognosis."
