The aftermath of sensation

John Le Carre once wrote something to the effect of "people don't care about the aftermath of sensation"... The "sensation" (among other I am referring to) was the voyeuristic thrill of seeing the crumbled building in Achrafieh. Next to the MTV old headquarters there are now two billboards calling for help through donations sponsored by the TV station itself and the Bachir Gemayel Foundation... But, like Haiti and so many other sensations, does anyone still care about the aftermath?
