Hugo Chavez on Nightline tonight!

Tonight's ABC News Nightline will feature Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in an interview with Ted Koppel. Chávez is friendlier with Fidel Castro than with George W. Bush; he has called the United States a "terrorist state" because of the "illegal" Iraq war, and he blames the United States for an attempted coup against him in 2002.

On the other hand, Venezuela has enormous oil reserves, so if we nuke it too hard, our SUVs will wind up glowing in the dark. Maybe it will make them more visible and thereby safer.

Nightline runs on most ABC stations from 11:35 p.m. until 12:06 a.m. (Eastern/Pacific), right after the local news. You can live without Jay Leno and Conan for one night.
