Item one: Caught an ad for Vasantham (the Tamil channel) for a series of Bollywood and Tamil movies to be aired in June. All feature (judging by the ad) doe-eyed beauties and well, manly men gazing forlornly into the camera... and the tag "an unspeakable love".

I'm not up to date on urban-speak but I think "unspeakable love" usually refers to same sex relationships?

Item two lips, indifferent red two: AP article on coroner's inquiry of dead American was inaccurate - and they were called on it. As far as we know, the man was found dead with suicide notes and it emerged that he had suffered from depression. The man's parents theorised that he'd been murdered because apparently his work was to have endangered US security. Coronor will have the verdict next month.

Wiki page has links. I'm boggled that initially, the parents requested for FBI to lead the investigation. You're not in the USA!

IIRC the FBI could in theory lead the investigation, but it would require that Singapore grant permission to let them investigate, since it's in Singapore.

Heh. People have pretty high faith in the FBI for some reason. They do take the best of the best and are highly selective.

Oh, gotcha. I did see the "FBI offered and was turned down, but later invited to participate" bits in the Wiki article, but I should probably have noted that. Sorry for the need for the long explanation! Americans do tend to have the "we're the only ones who matter" sort of mindset (for any definition of "we"), I'm sorry to say, and I'm even sorrier to say that I'm beginning to think that way and I need to be constantly vigilant and try not to.
