So This Is What Venezuela Does For Its Cardinals....

Arriving home last night, Venezuela gave a state ceremony to its new red hat, Cardinal Jorge Liberato Urosa Savino, the archbishop of Caracas.

Hugo Chavez and a veritable military tattoo showed up to greet the cardinal as he returned to the capital.

By the looks of it, you'd think Urosa was a head of state or something. Unreal.
