    Palossi - thought by most Brasilians to be multiply corrupt, therefore an ideal man to the 'The Governments Man' within Petrobras.

    'Mensalao 2' (Godfather Part II) can now REALLY start feeding oil funds into politicians' private bank accounts.
    Dantas will show them all how to do it, now he's out of prison.

    [Hope this doesn't sound as if I am upset at not being on the gravy-train!]

    Lol, Geoff, it was predictable that you would come up with something like that. Anyway, it's actually also good to see “concerned” residents like you (since you are a legal foreign resident there) in that wonderful nation. Keeps it's balanced...something like that. By the way, do you live close to the beach?

    #2 & 3,
    Don't shoot the messanger.

    In a continent where real shooting sorts out matters, it never fails to suprise me how few of the 'really important ones' get the bullet.
