Now that the Manti Te'o business is fading away — at least until it is revived as a movie or an afternoon soap opera or both — there is just one more question:
Why so much outrage and attention?
The stories in newspapers and magazines around the country.
The endless buzz on the Internet and talk shows, not to mention at the water cooler.
The confessional interview with Katie Couric (what, not Reverend Oprah?).
The interview with Dr. Phil.
(We might just have a little too much time on our hands.)
