Ever notice how people who ordinarily have no desire to adopt a child, and who, in fact, have even made repeated remarks against the practice, are quick to want to adopt any child focused in national headlines? "It's different! That poor boy lost his momma and daddy!" Really? Because, you know, most adoptable children are tight with their folks. Is it just that Americans want fame so badly, that they'll make a lifetime commitment to a living human child for a temporary fame buzz? What does that say about us?
