Troubled Brazil

The last couple of years have not gone well for Brazil.  Our friends in Brazil are frightened.  They are afraid to let their children go out on the streets unaccompanied.  The economy is in recession, dozens of high-level Brazilian politicians have been convicted of corruption in a scandal involving payments from the national petroleum country, President Dilma Rousseff has been impeached, preparations for the Olympic Games are devastatingly behind schedule, Guanabara Bay is polluted, and street crime is on the rise in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, the Zika and Dengue viruses are spreading.  The courts stand out as a Brazilian institution that is trying to do things right.
