With such a trend, I can't imagine what the 2009 report will say. :-(

The Dalai Lama recently visited Italy. The most public and prominent
Italians who were interested in meeting and talking with him was a
political comedian activist (Beppe Grillo) and a mayor (Letizia
Moratti). (http://beppegrillo.it/english.php ) That indicates to me
that some serious effort is underway in the country of focusing on one's
belly button. These recent events seem to support the above report.

If I was more Buddhist than I am, the combination of the experiences of
my Italian years plus the final months left me on November 17 with
almost nothing that I once valued when I entered the Italy in January
2003, but instead, a pure being, which would have been perfect for
entering a monastery. :-/

But all of that isn't really even important, at the end. I still have
my good health, which is more important than everything, so that is
the biggest lesson to my ~5 Italian years.
