Today in Esperantoland!

From last week: According to Libera Folio, Warsaw's new city-wide bike rental system will be named "Veturilo", according to an Internet vote from a jury-chosen best five. With 35% of the vote, "Veturilo" (meaning "mode of transport") beat runner-up "Wawabike" (oh, heaven help me) by 6%, which makes up for the fact that the people have chosen a name containing a letter ("V") which isn't even in the Polish language.

Still, Wawabike? Brrrrr...
