The Brazilian writer Millor Fernandes launched a public debate on the subject: What is the difference between "politician" and "thief"?
The answer of one of the respondents drew his attention: "The difference between a politician and a thief is that itís me who choice the first, while the second chooses me".
Millorís reply was: ďSir, you are a genius. You are the only one who managed to find a difference between the two."
