        Danny Williams, a loose cannon according to his critics and a symbol
        of the new Newfoundland to his admirers. With ExxonMobil and other

        Williams is taking a cue from Hugo Chavez, fighting for his people
        against the status quo. But can he save a province where unemployment
        is a fact of life and residents have left in droves? If anyone can do
        it, "Danny Millions" can.
