Venezuelans Celebrate Chavez With A Focus On His Handwriting
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Venezuela is honoring the 60th anniversary of the birth of its late leader, Hugo Chavez. Super dedicated Chavistas are commemorating his handwriting - mostly in caps and socialist red. The handwriting is familiar to Venezuelans. Chavez spent hours on national TV writing and drawing to explain his policies. Now it's a computer font, Chavez Pro. The economy is in shambles - so good that the font can be downloaded for free. It's MORNING EDITION.
