Google/Blogger are 'improving' service - consequently nothing is working, photo upload is down and has been for days; confusion, nonsense, haste, stupidity ... o que mais?

My pop-up window will not work with the new photo format - right-click / open in new window still works though, sorry for the inconvenience, not in my control.

I wanted to sort a few things out ... it will probably never be done, oh well.

'Saving the Amazon'? Simão Jatene, the outgoing Governor of Pará, set up a deal, I don't know much about it but it seems to please too many people to be true, and anyway I personally don't think the Amazon can be saved - I think it's too late; that is not a scientific opinion it is just my hunch.

The incoming Governor (Governadora) is Ana Julia, a Petista, PT, Partido dos Trabalhadores, Lula's party. I wonder how she will implement this deal?

Which brings me to thinking about Marina Silva, the brazilian Environment Minister that maybe Lula will trash for being too Ambientalista - though to me she seems soft; and Rona Ambrose, Canada's redundant feminist presence in the cabinet.

And such like thoughts ... like I said, it will probably go nowhere, ok. How much of an idiot do you need to be to beliebve that sex has anything to do with it? Or that indigenous peoples have a better relationship with it? Then you look at the state of it ... lots of idiots around out there eh?
