President Hugo Chavez is taking Venezuela back in time - by 30 minutes, to be exact. His government's plan to turn back clocks by a half-hour has some Venezuelans pleased at the prospect of sleeping in. Others seem vexed that Chavez is making the entire nation change its daily rhythm. Some bloggers suggest Chavez wants to get out of Washington's "imperialist" time zone, but Venezuela will be a half-hour apart from his Cuban allies as well.
