The Search for Inequality
The expensive search for reckless plutocrat Steve Fossett has turned up six lost plane wrecks in the last couple weeks. This begs the question from the Red and the Black, why the fuck are they looking for Stevie boy if they didn't have the time, resources or interest in looking for the other dentists and thrill-seekers in their expensive toys lost in the greater Nevada wasteland?
This NPR story is actually quite moving as a middle age man talks about the sense of loss he has had for 40 years because of the loss of his dad in a plane crash when he was young.
