Colombian President Alvaro Uribe to Venezuelan <del>comedian</del> President Hugo Chavez at Monday’s Latin American Unity Summit. The two apparently got into quite a verbal row which included the flinging about of obscenities and Chavez accusing Uribe of planning to assassinate him. Cuban President Raul Castro, noting the irony of two Latin American leaders shouting at each other at a Latin American <b><i>Unity</b></i> Summit, stepped in to calm things down a bit. Strange times indeed when a Cuban communist dictator is the voice of reason at a multi-national summit.
