CBS and NBC both closed their newscasts with an international dateline. CBS' Allen Pizzey had plastic fork in hand as he dined on maximum security cuisine at a C15th Italian fortress. Inmates at the Volterra Prison run a once-a-month restaurant for those from the outside world. The maitre d' is a bank robber. The brocade-clad waiter is a Sardinian bandit. Entertainment is provided by a knife murderer. "The staff is very good at offering a pasta you cannot refuse."
NBC's Anne Thompson filed from a reservoir along the Powell River in British Columbia. The water there is so cold and oxygen free that the trees in a forest that was submerged for a hydroelectric project have not rotted. Lumberjacks work with a remote controled submarine-cum-chainsaw that is so eco-friendly that it earned the seal of approval from the Rainforest Alliance, neat underwater video for NBC and a major coup for the public relations department of Triton Logging.
