Balloon Boy

I didn't stop to watch it when it happened so I'm not invested. I didn't care at the time and I still don't. I find the stupidity completely irritating. I want the whole story to just go away. If I never see another aluminum foil wrapped spaceship ever again, I won't feel any less on my deathbed.

There's one benefit: the story has knocked the 24/7 Jon & Kate + 8 train wreck off the airwaves. For a while, anyways.

Update: There's a YouTube video circulating with the three boys rapping. Lots of inappropriate language that is misogynistic and homophobic.

I didn't know what was going on with that whole deal either until last night. Just kept hearing bits and pieces in passing. To find out it was a stupid publicity stunt is not surprising, but increases my sense that this country is pretty hopeless and disturbingly shallow.
