Government by Hissy Fit 

Brazil is going to fingerprint US visitors to get back at us for fingerprinting their citizens, by order of one judge who compared the act to the worst Nazi horrors.

I just don't even know what to say... of course, on the one hand, I don't care in the slightest whether or not Brazil fingerprints me if I ever go there (no plans right now), but are people really that ridiculous? Does this judge actually think that us fingerprinting Brazilians is the moral equivalent of us torturing millions of Brazilians to death?

Hard to imagine.
