Assunto:  What is the meaning of "nit"
 
Mensagem:  Sid, completely missed the positions of the I and O keys.  Are you running a detective agency in Canada?  Sounds like something CSI would come up with, or Sherlock Holmes.

Ever see "O Xangu de Baker Street"?  Holmes and Watson go to Rio to help the Brazilian police catch a killer.  Funny scene where Watson is given credit for giving the name caipirinha to his favorite drink.  Good movie.

Had my fortune told in Campos de Jordan years ago.  Think I was told Xangu was my African god.  Remember that the gypsy said I was going to have trouble with a judge.  Probably said that because I am a large man and I usually have a serious or even "mean" expression.  Sorry, that is how I look.  But...I spent 30 years working with the criminal justice system, so I certainly had lots of contact with judges, prosecutors, defense counsel, etc.  It was funny, but it was also accurate.
