    What's kind of disheartening about this is that back in the late 70's when the American hostages were held in Iran, it galvanized the nation in support of them. In this situation, it doesn't seem like anyone even cares about anything besides some cheating bicyclist or Kanye & Kim Kardashian's baby. I was flabbergasted last night that I had to read a Russian newspaper to find out about about American hostages...

    So I do appreciate the coverage now, for what it's worth, and hope we get everyone who's still alive home safe.
