News Pool for a huge toss

Press Trust of India reports today that Italy’s national grid operator, GRTN, might switch off electricity supplies to a limited number of household consumers “It will not happen today, maybe (it will happen) tomorrow.”

Ridiculous. Considering two things: one, the newsworthyness of such a trivia, which has not happened and if it will, it will affect few consumers, and no one knows if it will even happen.
Two, PTI was established to generate news for the Third World for the consumption of the members of the Non Aligned News Pool. This was necessary because there was too much trivia news by Reuters, AP, AFP.

I wonder how will short power cut for day in Italy affect Indians who suffer power cuts daily. Maybe to take solace that if the Churches can suffer, so can we?
