>What do you folks think?

I think that I prefer to celebrate life ... (especially in these
days when anger, death, and dead-end thinking is so abundant)

In the Oct 27 issue of The Economist, pg. 92 is a newsbit that warmed
my heart:

"When a baby is born in Istanbul's big maternity hospital, the new
parents can press a button triggering a meteoric burst of light
on the bridge over the Bosphorus [river] that links Asia and Europe.
For its Italian creator, Alberto Garutti, this light piece, activated
on average of 70 times a day, is a way for people across the city
to celebrate life itself."
