Simon Nolastnamegiven wants me to write about: "How must it feel to be Atrios?"
These days, not so good. Oh sure, they look pretty happy in this picture, don't they? Just look at that Maurício, so youthful and strong and proud. Delma was never more beautiful or carefree than at the very moment the photographer yelled, "Queijo da palavra!" Emídia and Serginho and Jailton and Xandinho and all the rest, so full of life. They were just a fun-loving bunch of kids praising Jesus, and all was right com o mundo.
But that was before the coming of the End Times, i.e. the (s)election of George W. Bush. Will these youngsters ever smile again? Will anyone, anywhere, ever ever smile again?!?
Update: Although for some, maybe smiling isn't such a good idea anyway...Posted by Jim Treacher at September 23, 2004 11:37 AM
