Sierre Update: Headed for Lausanne?

I think I'll stop updating the story on the fate of the recently-suspended BD Festival in Sierre, Switzerland until there's a solid announcement of a new location. I like my comics shows, but I get the sense that some of these smaller stories may be driven in the hopes of sustaining interest rather than any real progress being made. Still, I enjoyed this article that indicates Lausanne is in the running because of the notion inched forward that countries should snap to and realize the good a solid BD Festival can do one's country. I also like that Lausanne is talking up its library, even though I'm not sure if the author believes them -- nerdy municipal dozens.
