    I DON'T KNOW WHETHER PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IN BRAZIL IS OF A LOW QUALITY -- OR WHETHER BRAZILIANS ARE JUST SHORT-TEMPERED ON THE SUBJECT.

    WHATEVER IT IS, IT HAPPENED AGAIN, LAST WEEK IN THE BEAUTIFUL BRAZILIAN CITY OF SAN PAULO.

    A FIFTY PERCENT INCREASE IN BUS AND STREET-CAR FARES WAS ANNOUNCED.

    AND IMMEDIATELY, THE NATIVES BEGAN GETTING RESTLESS.

    LATER THEY BECAME DOWNRIGHT SURLY.

    FINALLY, THEY WORKED THEMSELVES UP TO A FEVER PITCH AND BEGAN BREAKING THINGS BUS WINDOWS WERE SMASHED. DOORS BROKEN...A FEW VEHICLES WERE SET ON FIRE. MOBS BECAME VIOLENT.

    POLICE FINALLY QUELLED THE DEMONSTRATION, BUT AT A COST OF FOUR DEAD.

    YOU MAY RECALL THAT SOME MONTHS BACK A GROUP OF SUBURBAN COMMUTERS NEAR RIO DE JANERIO WENT BERSERK WHEN THEIR TRAIN WAS FOUR HOURS LATE.

    BEFORE THAT, ONE WAS OVER, THEY HAD DEMOLISHED SEVERAL RAILROAD STATIONS AND PUT AT LEAST ONE TRAIN OUT OF ACTION.
