I wonder why

As everyone probably knows there was a airplane that went down en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris a few days ago. Almost for certain there were no survivors. A great tragedy.

But in reading this report on the victims families I noticed mention was made of the probable loss of gun control advocate Pablo Dreyfus (among other things he helped with this — see for example here).

But when Neal Knox died (see also) I didn’t find any big name media outlets making mention of the loss of a historic civil rights leader.

I wonder why the difference…

No, not really. I’m pretty sure I know why.
