Two brief observations:

1) You have repeatedly argued that the situation in Venezuela is
complex and changing.  What John writes above is a recognition that
you both agree that the situation is complex and can't be analysed

2)  You have on numerous occasions explained that, given your
other professional and political commitments, you couldn't
reply right away to a particular question.  John, it seems to me,
is pleading for the same patience.

In solidarity, Jerry
