did they eat together? they might have shared sushi, for example.
It appears only Litvinenko at lunch that day. Mr Scaramella had only a bottle of water.
Is that like swapping spit? I don't want to know...
Can you say "sharing sushi" three times real quick?
How about possibly the amount he might have carried to poison Mr.Litvenenko?
The second man said he had only something to drink (coffee, I think), as he'd already eaten when he met with the now-dead man.

..That meeting was the afternoon of Nov. 1 at Itsu Sushi, a frequent rendezvous spot for Litvinenko and his friend Italian academic Mario Scaramella.
Scaramella said he brought along an e-mail purporting to list emigres to Britain being targeted by Russian agents as well as the identities of Politkovskaya's killers. The academic declined to say who sent the e-mail to him.
Litvinenko ate a bowl of soup before he headed for a table where the two could discuss the secret e-mail, Goldfarb said.
...Hours after the sushi bar meeting, Litvinenko was taken to Barnet General Hospital in north London with stomach pains. His condition gradually worsened over the next two weeks.
Strange story. Why was the Italian hospitalized so late after this meeting ? Litvinenko was hospitalized hours after the Sushi meeting. The Italian must have been poisoned days later ? Obviously the 'hit list' takes on an incredible importance. Are the assassins still in England with more of this poison ? Was this a test run for a larger attack ?
