Does No One Care?

I have a hard time understanding this one. I just got home yesterday after being on a 4 month motorcycle trip from Minnesota, up to the Yukon and Alaska, then back down to the western states. I posted about an accident I had up in Alaska when I hit a guardrail and had to get my moto repaired, but it was a good trip and we had fun. I found out when I got home that my neighbor's uncle was killed on his Harley back in September, when a woman crossed the centerline and hit him head on.

But it seems the media isn't really interested in the dead motorcyclist. I guess there's too many of them littering the highways of America. No, the media has to find a human interest story:

And to top it off, that story ran on the front page and was on TV on the day that the family buried Jon. Am I the only one who is disgusted by this?

There are four things you can't recover: the stone..after the throw, the word..after it's said,
the occasion..after it's missed and the time ..after it's gone.
Been There, Done That, Took Pictures, Retired.
