Here is a Tamil Nadu minister proudly claiming that he is corrupt. I am sure he is wondering what all the fuss is about and can probably give hundreds of examples of "others" doing similar things. The difference in this case is that he took the stink of corruption all the way to Rajya Sabha and talked about the same. His fortright behavior needs to be commended; hopefully appropriate legal action will be taken against him.
Another funny issue seems to be the actions against film stars for not attending the token fast. The dam issue is dead for another few months with Congress party deciding that it is time to shut up and both the partners in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka agreeing to it. So there is no need to pursue that dead horse any further. I guess the next set of riots will be somewhere in June/July. Whoever is in opposition in Karnataka at that point in time will get to burn some Rajnikant posters and Tamils will retaliate by torching a couple of Iyengar bakeries. That is a lot of irony and a testament to the ignorance of people.
