Ballon Boy (my take)
Unless you live under a rock, then you are familiar with the balloon boy story. if not please read (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/17/us/17blitzer.html) & (http://necolebitchie.com/2009/10/15/balloon-boy-admits-publicity-stunt) before reading any further.
What follows is strictly my OPINION!!! if you don't like it oh well, its my blog!!! anyways..
I was on twitter (twitter.com/bfears) when i began to take note of the balloon boy story by people posting thoughts on it. So I tuned in to TMZ's streaming live coverage of FOXNEWS. I was very worried and anxious and I was tweeting my thoughts as well. I was worried the boy might be dead because of the helium. Then once the balloon landed, and he didn't immediately crawled out my stomach dropped. I thought he was dead! Then the EMS crew didn't run over to him, I was shocked and baffled. Then when they said he wasn't in there, there was a report that the brother said he might have fell out. Then that was the first time there was doubt in my mind. When they found him safe at home, I thought it was a hoax, but I wasn't sure and I gave the balloon family the benefit of the doubt. But when I watched this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wI6UONWCq7A&feature=player_embedded) I knew it was a hoax. This (http://bit.ly/2iWJVf) further proved what i was thinking. This was a terrible hoax and the family should pay. Terrible terrible.
