    Sheriff: Charges to be filed in balloon saga

    I am so happy about this. When I saw the interview with the family, the parents's reaction to their child saying it was for show exuded guilt in my opinion. We reap what we sow!

    I thought I was going to throw up when I watched the coverage as the baloon was flying in the air and when they caught the balloon and there was no one in it. Talk about desperate for attention.

    I had heard on another board that the family who owns the wheat field in which the craft landed lost their crop from all the emergency vehicles swooping in. No linky, though.

    This dude is up feces creek.

    Wow. I'm glad that his upcoming appearance on Wife Swap has been canceled. I hope his wanting to be on TV is now a lost cause.

    I believe the right technical phrasing would be that "he is up a small moving body of excrement inside a Native American floating device without any means of propulsion."

    If it is a hoax hopefully the family is forced to pay for all the damages and reimburse the tax payers for the cost of the police and other services. This reminds me the runaway bride story.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    CNN, Wolf Blitzer specifically really acted like fools during this hoax. They took it hook line and sinker and invented supposed facts as they went along.
    Excluded every other newsworth story of the day and covered the Balloon Family as if it was some sort of car chase.
    I really tired of CNN just trying to make up sensationalized nonfacts as they go just so they can make money and boost their ratings.

    I long for the days of real news reporting.

    It sounds like they just wanted to let the balloon out a little ways for a few minutes, then land it.

    Sounds fun.

    But someone forgot to put the tether down, so the balloon was out of control.

    Then the boy showed up missing.

    Yeah, "it" probably was for the show, but "it" was making a flying a balloon a few feet off the ground for a few minutes. "It" was not staging a drama and involving the police.

    Even though the child was not in danger yet anytime parents use their children for monetary or polirical gain it pisses me off. Those two cretans need to be punished to the full extent of the law.

    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    Unfortunately, that describes the bulk of the media today.
