Liked what you read? I am available for hire.
She was a cute six year old, she did beauty pageants, she died, and it was mysterious. This is all very sad. But it happened ten years ago, and there's nothing we can do about it. There were 94 homicides in Oakland last year, and papers outside of the Tribune could care less. People are getting slaughtered daily in Darfur, and we're worrying about a girl that died ten years ago, because one guy in Thailand confessed to the murder, and he might not even have been the killer? Of course it's extremely sad to see any six year old die, and the circumstances are mysterious. But I cannot believe that we are giving this story front page news coverage ten years on, when there are many more sadder, preventable things we could be covering in the news. JonBenet Ramsey is dead, let's give the story the brief mention it warrants in the wire section, and move on.
