Irony

At the end of the Los Amigos Invisibles concert this past Thursday in Philly, I was chatting with the bass player, José Torres, when some schlub (had to be a U. Penn student) came up to him to ask a question ... in a Ho Chi Minh t-shirt, complete with prominent red star.

The irony? Torres and the other Amigos are from Venezuela -- where proto-dictator Hugo Chávez is busily transforming their country into a basket case.

Torres (not a fan of Chávez at all) is way too nice of a guy to say anything ... but I sure was tempted.
