King Tut...why all the fuss?

So there is research that King Tut died from malaria and complications from a leg fracture. I read this information and have to ask myself...in all reality, who cares? This boy king lived centuries ago. What relevance is there today? I love interesting history as much as the next guy, but doing CT scan and genetic testing on a mummy? The first thing that comes to mind is the expense of running all these various tests on mummified remains. With all that is plaguing our country right now, I can't help but think this money could go to better use somewhere else to help people who are alive and struggling right now. I could see if this was going to even maybe advance medical research in some way, but as it stands I just don't see the point. What are your thoughts?
