Brazil’s President: I’m Afraid to Fly in Brazil

In an absolutely extraordinary public relations move that is either complete genius or complete insanity, Brazil’s president said over the weekend that the air safety situation is so poor in Brazil that he is afraid to fly.  Sayeth he: "It’s no secret to any Brazilian that we have an aviation crisis…Personally, when the airplane door closes, I deliver myself to
God. Even with my luck in the hands of God, I confess I’m afraid. I
confess this publicly because I am not embarrassed to say we are
afraid."  Yowza!


  1. I think this PR move is good. Now you are talking about it. Else, how would I know anything about the Brazil’s President?
