Bananas in Brazil

After a six-month hiatus, I'm back to the blog today, inspired once again by the evidently congenital emotionalism in Brazil, and wondering if Folha and the other media will find a way to assign blame to Americans for Brazil's 7-1 loss yesterday in the World Cup games. (Which many found notable mainly because 8 points were scored in a single game, rather than the usual 1 or 2).

Today's Daily Mail, the UK tabloid that has made interesting inroads in the U.S., leads its Brazil wrapup today with a screaming headline (well, to be fair, Daily Mail headlines are always screaming): "Brazil's Darkest Hour: National Mourning; Riots in the Streets ..."

Just sayin'
