Italy stops

Today the transport workers are on strike, threatened with a pay freeze, and the journalists are on strike, complaining about them being banned from receiving transcripts from 'phone tapping.

The journalists, who submit to being licensed by the State, can hardly portray themselves as fearless chasers after truth. As to the trains and buses, well, we're all used to it here. The sun is shining and the bars and restaurants are open.
