Hugo Chavez Donates Island to New Jersey

Hugo Chavez Donates Island to New Jersey

Leftist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez met President Barack Obama recently at the Summit of the Americas. Chavez gave Obama a book about colonialism in Latin America and an island. Petty's Island is home to a fuel-storage center used by Venezuela-owned CITGO. Well, Chavez gave it back, and it's going to be a nature preserve, specifically preserving two bald eagles. That's not the only good thing about the return of the island to U.S. ownership, though. The island is a part of Pennsauken Township, NJ, and, according to their web site, the pirate Blackbeard parked his pirate ship there whenever he wanted to hang out in Philadelphia. Consequently, we think a few acres for a piracy museum isn't too much to ask.http://phillyist.com/2009/04/24/hugo_chavez_donates_island_to_new_j.php
