This week, the mystery of Malaysian Airlines flight 370 took another turn when Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced that two objects -- one 80 feet long -- had been spotted by satellite 1,000 miles southwest of Australia. Multiple ships and planes were quickly dispatched, though the intensified search has turned up nothing so far. The story has transfixed the world, not least because of the shock that something the size of a 777 could just disappear in this era of 24/7 global surveillance. It's also tapped into our common humanity, as 26 nations are now assisting in the search. A grief-stricken mother who was carried out of a press conference on Wednesday brought the real stakes of finding the plane home. "My dear," she cried. "I don't know where my dear is -- twelve days! My son!" The media is consumed by the mystery; the families of the passengers are left to deal with the misery.
