  1. Many years ago, when I was young, in the 1960s, I attended a private boarding school for girls and we had students from all over the world. One friend I had was from Brazil, her father was very high in the Brazilian government. The idea of shooting from a chopper at a civilian fits…….the top people had all the power.
    Her father died while playing Russian Roulette with several of his high official friends, and my friend went home, and we lost touch.
    Brazil has always been this way, regardless of the press they get for being so enlightened. In some ways, using alternative fuels to oil and lighting their homes, they are. The educational standards are pretty good. But, government has always been very dominant.
