The Boy Was In The Attic Not The Balloon

Falcon Heene, the 6-year old Colorado boy who was thought to have been in alone in a hot air balloon shaped like a flying saucer that went airborne, was home all along.

Obviously, I'm glad the kid is alright. But when the balloon landed this afternoon I wondered if he had met his end or if this was a cruel hoax.

It's not clear if it's a hoax but this family seems to be out of left field. The family appeared on the ABC reality TV series Wife Swap. The father, Richard Heene, has a series of videos posted on YouTube which ask the question "fake or real?" This only adds to my skepticism.

Needless to say I have no plans to watch either Wife Swap or Mr. Heene's videos.
