Rio Is Not the Capital of Brazil, Yahoo!

A tease for a Yahoo news story reads: “When Brazil’s capital won the Olympics in 2009…” I didn’t know Brasilia had won the Olympic bid. So then why is it being held in Rio? Or does Yahoo think Rio de Janeiro is the capital of Brazil? (It’s not; Brasilia is.)

These things really aren’t that hard to look up if you don’t know them. Check Wikipedia?
