And lions and bears too

(Someone asked me about this over dinner tonight. Here's my opinion.)

So apparently some guy in Florida was in a minor car accident recently, and the guy seems to have some notoriety for his skill at failed optimization problems. It was a single-vehicle collision, and nobody was seriously injured. As a result of ridiculous public curiosity about the accident, we learned that the driver of the vehicle has had extramarital affairs.

Bottom line: I couldn't care less about the details of the accident, nor about the driver's affairs, and I don't really understand why anyone else is worked up about the whole thing.
