"White, you see, being the absence of color," Actually it's just the opposite, which is why you get a rainbow when white light is run through a prism. It would be more correct to state that black is the absence of color, as it is the absence of reflective light.

Well NO Former Naval Person; what you state is TRUE about light but NOT about pigments.

The more of the various pigments you mix together, the MORE of the color spectrum that is absorbed and the darker the mix gets. 30+ years in the paint and coatings industry from Lab tech to plant manager including shading batches and correcting mis-tinted batches.

A suspect-who-shall-not-be-named-a-suspect is not now in custody.

The non-suspect is just sitting around a hospital, or some other undisclosed location, under heavy guard, being fully cooperative with law enforcement officials, who paid testament to his cooperation by raiding his apartment and taking away bags of material.

But newspapers with strong ties either to the Least coast or the Left coast want to emphasize to you that there are NO SUSPECTS in “custody.”

Nor is there a connection between the suspect-who-shall-not-be-named-a-suspect and his raided apartment-that-shall-not-be-named-his-apartment. 

There is only a Saudi national with his favored visa status, who...
