Two Birds With One Stone

The news is being dominated right now by the death of Thai Rak Thai MP, Atthapol Sanitwongchai, and his 1st-year university student lover, Wassana Sunee.

Of course, the details are where it’s all at and they can be found here.

I find it particularly interesting that some people suspect that the MP’s death may have been caused by his young lover. She’s dead too though, so even if she did do it (which I highly doubt) – it’s not like they can bring her back for the trial.

No matter where you go in the world, people love a scandal and they’ll do their damnedest to get one too.

    she’s 25. “first year student” made me think of a 17 year old.

    Yeah, I read the account in the paper … “first year student”… thinking she was 18,19… then it says she was 25. Was she a first year Masters degree student?

    Today’s paper had a quote from the MP’s father saying something about his son having tons of girlfriends which sounds like he wasn’t much of a loss husband-wise.

    I think the ‘first-year’ thing makes it more sensational.
