Allow me to clarify that I did not vote in this years selection process, 
and have no intention of voting in next years.  My comment about Torino 
was based on two things: the closeness of the competition this year, and 
my own love of visiting Italy in the summer, which I don't get to do 
very often.  It was intended as a personal remark only... to cheer up 
the Italians. :)
