(Least Surprising) Quote of the Week


"Mayumi described that she and Richard Heene devised this hoax approximately two weeks earlier.... She and Richard had instructed their three children to lie to authorities as well as the media regarding this hoax."

-- From a signed affidavit in which Mayumi Heene, mother of 6-year-old Falcon Heene, admits that she and her attention-seeking, reality show veteran husband Richard engineered the entire Balloon Boy incident

Can we now banish these freaking people to an island where no one ever sees or hears from them again? For them, that would be a fate worse than death.

First send them a bill for all the services that they disrupted/put into action in order to "find" the kid, make them actually PAY it and then banish them to an island. Actually just the parents. Give the kids a chance. Or not.

Maybe after sentencing they can arrange for papa to be on Lockdown.

Unfortunately, given their ages and all the weirdness they've seen and participated in already, those kids probably don't have much chance.

So none of them will get to participate in celebrity death-match then?

While we're at it, how about the media stop calling that kid "bubble boy", the kid's a victim here; How about shifting to talking about Bubble Dad.

It's kind of like calling a young girl "Rape Girl" because she was molested, instead of focusing on the crime of the rapist.
