Dr. Rowley‘s Show Trial

Dr. Rowley’s cozy friendship with our Venezuelan neighbor and resident tyrant Nicolas Maduro is clearly rubbing off on him.  He’s adopted Maduro’s fondness for Conga line dancing, making rambling speeches and threatening political rivals with violence. It now appears that Dr. Rowley has also developed a taste for that favorite dish of the Maduro regime; public displays of ridiculous political propaganda. That’s because on Wednesday Dr. Rowley’s government held what it described as a “public education exercise” on the economics of the energy industry at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Except the public wasn’t invited, and people educated in economics and the energy industry weren’t allowed to speak.
