In the news

Call it ranting day. I am sitting here drinking coffee in my green "make coffee not war" mug, and watching last nights newscast. The mug? Oh, yes, my husband is a wannabe hippie! Sometimes I just have to shake my head at the crap I hear.

Let's start first with the Boy in the Balloon. Sounds like the start of a Bones episode. Let's thank God that it wasn't. For those that were under a media black rock yesterday, a young boy named Falcon Heene apparently crawled inside his fathers homemade weather balloon and took off. This was a family that was on Wife Swap, so people already thought they were crazy. When the balloon finally came down after a 50+mile journey that the entire country watched, the kid wasn't in it.

Where was Falcon? Apparently hiding in the garage attic. Heard his parents calling him, but was scared to come down. Now, if this was my child? There would be baseboard scrubbing, sitting on her bed, writing letters of apology to each and every single person that helped look for her....

But not the Heene family. Guess what? They don't believe in punishment. So, this 6yr 21st century Hide and Seek champ suffers no consequences for his actions.

Next, let's move on to the Justice of the Peace that refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple. Because in his PERSONAL OPINION interracial marriages do not last, and he is only looking out for the best interest of the future children this couple might have.

What is up with that this year? Looking ahead to what a person might do, not what they have done, and granting or denying things?

What this man did was illegal. You took a job, and if you have moral issue with it, you need to quit. Irritating Bigot.

Back to drinking my coffee while hippie boy sits here watching some Bond movie.


Apparently the Heene family is hitting the talkshow circuit, and on Larry King last night the 6yr old said "you guys said was for the show" I watched footage of the Today Show, and I have decided the child needs new parents. Ugh.
