Venezuela and “se fue la luz” again

We can predict two things about life in Caracas:

1) President Maduro will blame everything on the merchants; and.

2) the lights will go out somewhere in the country.

The lights went out again yesterday:

"A power outage briefly darkened Venezuela’s capital and other parts of the country Monday night in what President Nicolas Maduro said appeared to have been an act of sabotage against his socialist government.

The blackout began shortly after 8 p.m. as Maduro was addressing the nation about his plan to reduce inflation battering the automotive industry. Within minutes, people in downtown Caracas could be heard banging on pots in an act of protest.

Maduro, deprived of the airwaves, then took to Twitter to say that he and his aides were monitoring the “strange blackout that occurred in the same place as the last act of sabotage.”

Later, when power was restored, he ordered the armed forces on maximum alert to prevent attacks that he said were being planned by his opponents against the electric grid and the nation’s oil installations."

Such is life in Venezuela!  Maybe Maduro needs to have another private chat with the ghost of Chavez!
