RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - As commented on by the Curmudgeon two weeks ago, Chief of Staff Antonio Palocci, during the four years he was not in Government, increased his net worth by some R$20 million. He’s “explaining” how that happened but many people (including the Curmudgeon) don’t care.
What bemused the Curmudgeon two weeks ago was the question of whom Dilma would find to perform the role Palocci had performed for her, i.e. herding cats. The felines in question are not domestic cats, they are another species entirely—undomesticated “powercats” a/k . . .
