Hmm, I seem to have been very misunderstood. I said "It isn't up to me,
nor should it be" (or words to that effect, you'd have to look it up).
I really meant that.
The committee did a great job this year, and next year's committee will
do a great job too.
I know that my opinions are often viewed as carrying a lot of weight,
and for that I sincerely apologize. I just like Italy. :) It was just
a personal comment.
