RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Salvador, Bahia, today, is the scene of events that remind the Curmudgeon of that old familiar Carioca football saying: “Things happen to Botafogo that even God doubts.” We have federal troops firing (rubber bullets) upon state troopers. Unarmed state troopers. State troopers who have not committed any crime. What have they done to deserve this? They have gone on strike.
