I'm watching you

From Reuters, "Venezuela launched a Zeppelin on Thursday to patrol Caracas, seeking to fight crime in one of Latin America's most dangerous cities but also raising fears that President Hugo Chavez could be turning into Big Brother."

"Police will be able to control the blimps remotely, steering them over the city of about 5 million"

I'm simultaneously deeply disturbed as well as totally excited about the thought of police state zeppelins in an urban setting. Just load a turret on those puppies and it'll be just like those awesome animes and sci-fi flicks. Can't wait for the barcode tattoos!
