Strange Happenings

Surely you have heard the story of the "balloon boy" by now. As the story unfolds, it is sounding more and more like it may have been nothing more than a publicity stunt on the part of the father. If that is the case, I hope there is some way he can be held liable to pay for all the tax-payer funded planes and helicopters that had to be scrambled in an attempt to "rescue" the balloon.

I'm still trying to learn how to link things onto my blog. Sometimes I can. But I could not find the option for linking this video. Paste the below link into your address line and then watch the accompanying video (nobody was hurt):,0,2805301.story

I watched balloon dad this morning. The story sure sounds fishy.

I was expecting to read your prediction of how bad Texas was going to beat that school from the north.

That school to the north that Jeff is refering to is what many native Texans call "The University of Texas @ Norman".
