Amelia Earhart

What does it say about me that I rather hope they haven't found her plane?

Oh right. It says that I love a good mystery and the numerous pulp storyline possibilities that surround her disappearance. Or, perhaps, I'd rather she ended up on the TARDIS.

Truthfully, the story proves that a legend is always made much bigger by a disappearance. We, as humans, love mysteries. And we love to have in the back of our mind that our heroes might, in the end, not be dead. Finding a body messes with that. Not to stand in the way of the searchers, but I hope they don't find her for a long time yet.
