From Matichon Weekly, September 28, 2012
The cover reads: I’m not afraid of the Men in Black, but I’m afraid of the men with ‘black hearts’
[Reference is to the story of the Truth for Reconciliation Commission of Thailand’s (TRCT) report on the Red Shirt protest in April-May, 2010. This report stated that there were armed “men in black” among the protesters. The report further stated that these “men in black” assaulted soldiers and were connected to the Red Shirt guards. The men with black hearts here probably refers to Thaksin and his men who have used the Red Shirt movement to advance their cause.]

From Nation Weekend, September 28, 2012
The cover reads: Several drops of honey
[The reference is to the news story on September 25, 2012 concerning the event when Red Shirts and Yellow Shirts confronted each other at the Department of Crime Suppression. One group, the Red Shirts, went to support Mrs. Darunee Kritboonyalai, a major Red Shirt ally, who filed a lawsuit against Miss Manassanan Nookham for defamation.
When people fight over nothing, the THai saying is “it’s because of just a drop of honey,” meaning the cause is so very little, but the event become worse than it should be. So “several drops of honey,” means the event is caused by many little things, and not just because of the lawsuit.]
