I am not terribly surprised that people would be searching more assiduously for the dirt on Tiger Woods than the fate of the Chilean miners or the Louisiana oil spill. Two reasons for that: 1)wherever governments become involved in cleaning up a mess, (oil spill, trapped miners) people lose interest partly because they feel it would be taken care of one way or the other without drama. Ditto for healthcare; 2)it is the tabloid driven personal news items like marital problems involving multiple players, outrageous behavior and utterances by public figures and much hyped electronic goods launches that excite the imagination because people can go on having their own opinions on the issue, no matter what the facts are.

Natalee Holloway on the list in 2010, so many years after her disappearance, would have been a surprise by itself. But Joran van der Sloot, the jerk who is widely thought to have been responsible for her mysterious vanishing got nabbed for the murder of another young woman in the past year.
