Apropos the crashed Air France Airbus, I had been wondering why even otherwise more careful channels such as NDTV Hindi were invoking the Bermuda Triangle. But while they seemed to be doing so only as a digressive aside, reader Aditya Kapur points to one observant blogger Uber Desi who spotted this gem in the TOI: Bermuda Triangle to blame for crash?
I mean, really.

The Web site Pakistan Daily is an Islamabad-based hub for Pakistani citizen journalism, promising Pakistani readers: “Your News. Powered by You.” It is also an excellent place to turn if you want to read in on the latest conspiracy theories making the rounds in that country. Or just get very scared. Somewhat disturbingly, the source for the “top story” on Pakistan Daily today is Pakistan’s president, Asif Ali Zardari. As an anonymous article on the site reports accurately, in an interview with NBC News which aired on Sunday, Mr. Zardari claimed that he “knew” that Osama bin Laden was an American “operator” during the 1980s.More here

It’s just that doing that now would be contaminating themselves with a losing touch. For this faction of the BJP, not being associated with Mr Singh et al is a canny decision.
