A little disappointed

Nancy Grace has returned to the Haleigh Cummings/Misty Crosselin story. I thought tonight she'd lead with Balloon Boy. I would have loved her "I can't imagine what I'd do if the twins took off in a helium-powered flying saucer!" story.

I must be coming down with something

How else to explain my obsessed-almost-to-tears interest in little Balloon Boy? If I'm in a tizzy over a hoax, I swear I'm gonna ... well ... be angry and then take a nap. It would be so much better if Balloon Boy (Falcon) is alive and has nothing more serious than a fascinating story to tell.

6-year-old Falcon was never even on the balloon. Which means 1) he's safe and 2) I'm a sap.

Just a meme
