Rant of the day: The BALCO steroid "scandal"--does anyone really care, and if so, why?

Why was this insignificant story on the front page of my local fishwrap, above the fold?

Isn't there more important news? Aren't we at war somewhere? Isn't a nomination to the Supreme Court pending? Isn't there an investigation into a CIA agent's exposure that could potentially bring down the Vice President?
Wasn't there an earthquake that killed, oh, a gazillion people?

I could go on longer and make this a real rant, but I've already expressed what I think.
