Life imitates the movies
It seems that every time I watch a movie or TV show about an international fugitive, the federal marshall, or FBI agent, or whomever is pursuing, shows up in a tropical environment in a hideous hawaiian shirt.

Could it be that this is based on reality?

Take a look at the picture at the left (click image for a larger version). On the right, with his pants resting just below his nipples, is the guy who's been charged with the murder of JonBenet Ramsey. He's being held in Thailand.

The guy waving towards the camera, I'm guessing, is a Thai official of some kind.

So who's the other white guy? The only thing I can come up with (and I'm basing this here on that terrible shirt) is that he's the U.S. government representative. (Picture from CNN.com. Article here.)
