Balloon Boy: Publicity Stunt Or What ?

What do you think people? Most of yesterday’s afternoon news was filled with the story of ‘Balloon Boy’ – we all thought little 6 year old Falcon Heene was inside a basket of a large mylar weather balloon floating across the Colorado skies.

Come to find out, Falcon was at the house, in the attic.

First and foremost, we should all be happy that the kid is safe.

Now, outside of that, there are some doubts that have surfaced as to the validity of the situation. Check the boy’s response to questioning during an interview on CNN:
