I have never been stuck in a hurricane and since I don't surf and do not enjoy observing other people's lives and property being destroyed I hope never to be in such a situation.
However this is impressive.

Laurie Anderson's musings on Superman.

She leaps tall buildings in a single bound.

She then clobbers the American National Anthem, don't get too frisky she goes on to clobber all national anthems.

She then tackles the national debt.

What Laurie does not know is that "Yankee Doodle" is a song created by the English to belittle American settlers.

Stevie wanted to write a song.

Here is the process from conception, to planning, to completion.
Worth the watch.

So they selected AZUL.
Good luck to them.
Bring those air fares down you guys, although I suspect you will just adapt to the status quo but since I cannot predict the future and I am not pessimistic by nature please prove me wrong.
Boa sorte AZUL.

Prester John

Prester John was a myth that turned out to be a fairytale.
Christian European nations since the early middle ages attacked and were attacked by their Islamic counterparts such as the Ottoman Turks. So how does Prester John play into this? It was believed that he was the ruler of a powerful kingdom located in the midst of Islamic kingdoms making him a formidable ally since Prester John, as legend had it, was a Christian.
Well the Europeans, specially the Portuguese and the Spanish, looked for this guy as they made their way into Africa from the late fourteen hundereds on.
They never found him since he never existed.
