"A Massachusetts woman says the disappearance of six Brazilian flags from outside her business is a sign of hatred toward her home country. Lucy Duarte, a Brazilian native who has been an American citizen for 20 years, says she has flown both the Brazilian and U.S. flags outside of her Hyannis, Mass., jewelry and perfume store for the past decade. Duarte, who has been in the United States for 30 years, told the Cape Cod Times that she had practiced raising both flags and lowering them daily, but had permanently affixed them after a family member voiced concern about her climbing a ladder so often. And that's reportedly when the theft began." (11/14/11)
