I was home when the balloon blew across much of Colorado, pursued by helicopters and ground rescue, possibly carrying a six year old named Falcon, possibly alive, possibly dead.
The balloon touched down lightly. Maybe he was alive!
He was not there. Falcon's brother said he saw the him fall out. Could he still be alive?
He was hiding in the attic the whole time.
Yes, the hoax cost multiple law enforcement agencies lots of money.
It was the best thing on television since the chase of the white Bronco.
Good entertainment at any price.
