    FYI

    This message came through Alliance forum.
    I find it important enough to forward it, in a time when trustability of
    information is crucial.
    Any of the referred-to information sources may turn out to be wrong or
    misleading, on purpose or not - CNN, CNN viewer, or both.
    Should be interesting to investigate. If people among you have access to
    both 1991 and 2001 CNN archives, please check.
