Today's Cartoon: Suspect Arrested in JonBenet Ramsey Case

Wow, has it really been 10 years already? Why it seems like only yesterday that the cable news outlets were competing with each other to provide us with the most comprehensive, round the clock coverage of JonBenet Ramsey investigation; by exploiting that family's tragedy in an effort to re-live the glory days of the O.J. Simpson trial a couple of years earlier. My, how things have changed since then ;)

Maybe it's because the JonBenet Ramsey investigation has long since fallen into the realm of "infotainment" that it never really seems to be out of the headlines for any long period of time, which may be due to the fact that stories like this are not only good for ratings, but they are also a great way for the mainstream media to slack off; by keeping the public distracted from the bigger issues that are happening in the world ;)
