I really enjoyed tonight's opening ceremony festiivities. No matter the reaction from the international community, I'm going to extend a heartfelt "Parabéns!" to director Fernando Meirelles for a job well done. He is a true auteur, and I liked his "story of Brazil."

Honestly, I can't remember the last time I tuned into an Olympic opening ceremony, so it's hard for me to compare tonight's ceremony with say, Beijing's or London's opening ceremonies (I've heard that Beijing's was over-the-top, "in your face" spectacular and that London's was "fun"), but considering all the budgeting woes and problems that he faced, I think Meirelles and his team did a fine job.  :top:

It will not be in the good news section of this post, never been  there have no desire to go there as a personal preferance, I know there's the good,the bad, the ugly, and I'm going with the ugly side of life for lack of work and from what I read Rio is Bankrupt. I read a article where one guy said that he robs for all is corrupt and he pointed to the politicians at every level what a outlook on life. I am not anxious to see how this plays out I only wish for the best yet if wishes were horses beggars would ride. It's going to get messy maybe police state for the people have been nice as host for the games. Now it's time for business as the protest will start soon and no work means more people in the streets. It's my observation this end is not going to be pretty. No work means less taxes collected and that usally signals a breakdown in services. I wonder how long the security will stay for when they leave they will only have to return. It's going to be a mess with the daily protest for if one has no work one might create havoc and who's going to clean up the mess. Just a small rant (lol)
