Make her love me or I will blow up Earth. I kid you not.
RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - A Brazilian woman whose estranged husband held her hostage at gunpoint on a bus for 10 hours along with dozens of passengers last year has decided to reunite with him.
"I forgave him out of love ... I believe it was an irrational act and that we can resume our life in peace," Brazil's Globo news agency quoted Cristina Ribeiro, 35, as saying on Monday, eight months after the nationally televised hostage drama.
The couple, who have three children, have decided to live together again, Globo reported.
“The prosecution rests its case, your honor. It turns out that the gunman is sorry and he and his wife are reconciling. Mission accomplished, happy ending, now let’s all go get waxed.” We don’t know much about Brazil except that they have nice beaches, everyone is good looking, the people speak Portuguese, has the world’s largest Catholic population and kidnapping in not uncommon. How all of this connects, we don’t know. We do know that rewarding negative behavior (treason, terrorism, kidnapping, et al) is bad policy. What happens next time that he wants Red Lobster and she wants Olive Garden? Let’s just say we wouldn’t want to be on a cruise ship with these two.
