Paul Z,

So be it?

I am satisfied that John answered the question you asked (just as
Michael L is now "happy to see" his "response to my last note and
my questions"), not that I  "support"  in all respects his position on
Venezuela.  If my "support is recognized"  then it should be my
support for the Venezuelan revolution -- a support that I have
given not merely by what I have written on the Internet (a support
that has been unwavering,  as has been your own) but by attending
Chavezista protests in NYC and marching with them at other
demonstrations, such as the March 19 anti-war demonstration
that marched from Harlem to Central Park.  I have also over the
years marched with Zapatistas and supported Zapatista events ...
and I will be happy to do so again.

In solidarity, Jerry
