Food For Junk, Food for Thought

AP via The Seattle Times: Hugo Chavez has figured out a way to interact with Venezuela's squatters--offer them food in return for garbage. Of course, it's political influence peddling at its most naked. But it's also not a bad deal. Who could complain if politicos in Kenya did this in their campaign fight over the proposed new constitution, which seems likely to fracture the already fractious governing coalition (see this article from the East African Standard.)
