Why Just Black Holes?

Why is it that the only astrophysical phenomenon that anybody has any interest in is black holes? You even have two entire forums devoted to it. I can tell you, from a science perspective, neutron stars and white dwarfs are at least as interesting. And what about cosmology? Cosmological research is at its highest point ever and we're in the midst of a philosophical revolution of how we look at the universe. I'm sure these things are discussed, but it seems rather crude to have it lumped under "General Issues". What about extrasolar planets? Gamma-ray bursts? There isn't even a solar system forum. Does the public really not care about these things?
