6. This a bit different take on your OP. I find it interesting that we, as Americans, go right on with

our big sporting events the same day these horrific tragedies take place. Sure, the broadcasters lower their voices and speak solemnly about the loss of love ones. Then, it's back to the game with fans screaming and insulting the opposing team. Nothing is going to interrupt our lives unless someone we know is directly affected by these tragedies. The media helps sanitize the carnage by allowing us to pretend out fantasies are more important than reality.
