Hugo Chávez made my job in online news exceptionally more interesting

My job was to make sure good stories would win. The job paid decently but the infinite insignificance of the Internet got dull quickly. I’d spend eight hours a day wading through every dumb criminal story, weed protest, Illuminati scare, cat video, and 9/11 conspiracy. The job would briefly become interesting when news broke. And that’s when I really started to appreciate Hugo Chávez.

Hugo Chávez, thank you for making my life more interesting all these years.
