The press has neatly downplayed this, saying that INXS lead singer

Michael Hutchence (whose biggest hit was probably "New Sensation," and who

was starting an anniversary tour called "Lose Your Head") died under

"mysterious circumstances." Australia police are flying to interview Sir Bob

Geldof, Hutchence's girlfriend's estranged husband.

NY Post mentions the possibility and the term "a a" in para. 9 of the

article on p. 7 today (Friday 28 Nov.), which I imagine might mean other

Murdoch-owned papers in UK and Australia are mentioning it too. The

headline of the article has `suicide' in skeptical quotat-marks.
