Brazilian Voters Throw Punches in Class Struggle

Voters in Brazil are demonstrating what a class struggle is like. According to the Journal,

One evening last week, Danielle Tristão walked into a bar in a tony neighborhood of this seaside city wearing a T-shirt emblazoned "Lula Yes." She was declaring her support for Brazil's blue-collar president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who is a heavy favorite to win re-election on Sunday but is despised by Brazil's upper crust. Ms. Tristão, who is 38 years old, said hostile patrons were soon pelting her with fliers for Mr. da Silva's centrist opponent, Geraldo Alckmin, and even scuffling with her. In the melee, one of the customers bit off part of Ms. Tristão's left ring finger.
