Venezualan Cartoonist Fired After Healthcare Cartoon

The firing of Rayma Suprani over a cartoon showing the signature of Hugo Chavez moving into a flatline is explained in reasonable, clear fashion here. What's remarkable is to note the number of cultural factors in play in what seems like a fairly direct act. The idea that people be fired for opinion work is always a bit troubling barring a completely deranged evacuation of ethics and good sense.
