(Reuters) - Venezuela's Hugo Chavez suffered bleeding after a six-hour cancer operation in Cuba, the government said on Thursday, adding to a stream of somber news about the ailing president's condition.

2. Good career move

The bill will soon be due for Chavez's fiscal recklessness and his successor will have to deal with it.
