>>There's probably a point in here somewhere. I just have no idea what it is.

I think the point is that a story that include a major metropolitan area, intentional bombs, and Muslim connections (however remote), and an OJ-Simpso-esque police chase has all the making of a real-life NCIS that we just can't turn away from - all in the name of being horrified and outraged. Throw in a city-wide lockdown for a whole day, just so people have to watch the cable news and Big Government-in-Action a little more, and a measly small town accidental fertilizer plant explosion just can't compete. Even North Korea is feeling a little miffed at the lack of coverage.
