Now I'm a little riled up.
One of the things she talked about is the story about the weather balloon fiasco yesterday. Click on her site if you live under a rock and have no idea what I'm talking about.
IF this was a hoax, I'd like to ask the parents a couple questions......
IF this was a hoax, did you think about the danger that hundreds of people were put in because of it?
IF this was a hoax, did they think about the pilots of the helicopters who were asked to fly to help rescue the boy? Did you think about what you say to the families of the pilots if one of those helicopters crashed?
IF this was a hoax, did they think about Denver International Airport and the hundreds of people who were on aircraft that day that could have been in danger of running into that balloon? Or did you plan on a nice sunny day just in case? How would you have face thousands of family members if a plane had crashed because of this?
IF this was a hoax, would they have allowed the crazy rescue ideas to be put into action, putting even more people in danger? Or would you have said enough is enough?
But there are even more issues that are of course less important...
~the cost of these rescue operations
~the cost of closing down Denver International (or rerouting traffic)
~the inconvenience of thousands of people who were delayed
I'm sure there are many more issues we know nothing about.
I'm hoping that when they investigate this, they do a thorough job. This guy seems like he is a pretty good actor.
