>Let me add that Mr. Grillo's initiative has been a grand success.

300,000 signatures is remarkable.

After 4 years and 8 months here (Italy), I've seen in detail what this
young person describes:


I _would like_ to be optimistic that 300,000 signatures signals a new 
beginning for this country. Instead, I'll just say: "let's see".


P.S. Many here already know, but for those who don't: I'll be moving
Stateside for a little while: to work at the Southwest Research Institute
in Boulder, Colorado, starting in later November. It was a very long chain
of reasoning driven by my bank account, my science, some serendipitious
events with friends and colleagues, seeing a good environment to recover
and my past good experience living in Boulder. To be sure, Europe will be
pulling me back the instant I step off of the plane.
