If you think the movie house is full of tired summer sequels, how about morning TV? This morning, Katie Couric is back on the trail of the JonBenet Ramsey murder. To hard-news junkies, this story has always been a never-ending black hole for soccer-mom National Enquirer readers with Inquiring Minds. That’s not to suggest that no one should care about six-year-old beauty queens dying young, but rather why is this particular case so important over all the other unfortunate child murders in America? It just recalls the classic Onion headline: “Ugly Girl Dies, No One Cares.”
I know it could be worse. Katie’s Hillary interview could have had four parts instead of three.
