JB, I did not knew at first what to think of his pronouncement . . .
Now I think that perhaps he'd been testing how the idea would be received. The problem is, if FIFA ever allows the possibility of improvisations so earlier in the process, this could be grabed by the Brazilian government and used for even larger improvisations than the inevitable ones that certainly will have to be done at the end of process, with a consequent decreasing in both expectations and final results.

As for what you had written before, JB, there is no question that you are not an apologist for Dilma, but you are indeed a bit more optimist than me, or at least more hopeful.
