Comment of the Week


"If a boy stows away in a backyard science experiment and then falls to a horrible death, reminding people of the immense responsibility and terrible anxiety of parenting, then you've got a news story.

If a backyard science experiment floats away and the kid hides in the attic, then you've got a time out."


-- ntx, reacting to the "balloon boy" story

Congratulations, ntx. You've just won a brand new Chrysler Cordoba and you can pick it up at Morty's office.

I would say you get a spanking at least, but I am old school.

But then again, if daddio put them up to it.... Maybe a quick kick to 'nads for him, eh?

Anybody catch the thing on Time this morning about how a comment by "balloon boy" on Larry King Live seems to suggest the entire incident was a publicity stunt?
