(few/no stories about African War torn countries or third world disease killing another 10,000+ today)
Curiousity is a very significant and important aspect of being a higher mammal, and I’m wondering how much it affects our prioritization of other aspects of our lives.    The JonBenet story involved an interesting and provocative and disturbing mystery elements, so is that why it so captivates the collective interest?   What are the factors that affect our focus/attention on one thing rather than another?
