Cutting Cost? First thing that goes is maintaining the system. This goes for all things, airlines, utilities, bridges, roads etc. "New normal".

If this was a rescue where were the live updates, theme music and interviews of family, friends, rescuers and rescued and the psychologists describing what the victims were going through?

I don't think this happened at all.

They didn't get eaten by packs of wolves either like in the movie. Nothing exciting ever happens in Ohio. For true disasters Louisiana and Cali are way out front.

That's why the Browns and Bengals suck. We need a disaster for them to "heal us" from.
9/11 was cured by the Giants win in the SuperBowl. We couldn't go through a day without breaking down and crying over Katrina until the Saints taught us to believe again. So we just need a disaster to inspire the team to help us heal.(Sorry, decaying rust belt doesn't qualify as an interesting enough disaster. And Detroit already claimed that one anyways.)
