Kim,

The same newspeople called the OJ trial"The Trial of the Century" (overlooking, for instance, the Nuremburg Trials) and regulary refer to AIDS as "The Twentieth Century's Costliest Epidemic" forgetting the Spanish Influenza (200 million dead!) Polio, Smallpox, and Tuberculosis, Columbine High School was the worst massacre of children (at least we Mudcatters know about the 1913 massacre in Calumet, Michigan-"And the children that died there was 73"), not that these things aren't serious, but there is such a thng as perspective.

TV news people tend to sell the news, which they do by claiming that, whatever it is that they are covering, is more important than anything since the last thing they were covering--
