Subject: Lights out at Torino!

The city of Torino asked to the newspaper 'La stampa' to make a poll to
people when they think it's possible to switch off decorative lights in
order to save money. The result was:
14% at 10 p.m.
13% at 11 p.m.
34% at midnight
38% after midnight.
This was interpreted as if the majority (38%) voted after midnight so that
the Torino's council think to turn off light at 1.30 a.m.!
This is obviously false! The majority (62%) voted for midnight or earlier!
We have always to fight against not only private interests but also with
stupidity of some journalists.
Hi to all,
