y'all, please send virtual hugs to the Brazilian people tonight, who lost their entire national museum in a catastrophic fire. thousands of artifacts that date back thousands of years were lost, as well invaluable artworks from many cultures. this is a terrible loss for humanity.

as an anthropologist, artist and a lover of brazilian culture, and as someone who studied tupi, this loss is staggering and tremendous.

This is mad. Plum awful, and a poisonous auspice. Shades of Bagdad and Palmyra.

I've heard of Tupi, and hence guess a bit of what this loss must mean for Brazil. Heaps condolences...
