Ed Barbier - Centennial WY

Feb 19, 2014

My name is Ed Barbier, I’m from Centennial Wyoming. When the Venezuela President Hugo Chavez died, I was driving to Laramie with my daughter; we were driving from Centennial to Laramie.

And because we were listening to the excellent coverage by NPR of the funeral, death, and the life of Hugo Chavez, she started to ask me all sorts of questions about Venezuela, about its recent economic development, politics, and why Hugo Chavez was an important figure. We couldn’t have had that kind of conversation between my daughter and myself if we hadn’t had that type of NPR coverage, which Wyoming delivers to you every day and all the time.
