I sure wish the folks from the new Fox TV show Lie to Me could take a crack at Ann Curry's interview with octuplets mom Nadya Suleman. I've only seen two episodes of Lie to Me, but I'm pretty sure I caught Nadya telling some whoppers (like when she said she has not had her lips done. Come on!). The thing about the interview that was most disturbing to me was Nadya's complete lack of emotion. This woman gave birth a week ago to eight babies whose lives are still very much in the balance (and she has NO means of supporting them), so that must be like postpartum times a billion. Plus she's been completely vilified by the media and the public at large. But she showed ZERO emotion. The Dateline folks had a huge box of tissues at the ready, but they went untouched. Is that normal? (To be fair, she was brought to tears once, when talking about her son with autism.) I don't know. Maybe "normal" and "Nadya Suleman" shouldn't be used in the same sentence.
