Comment of the Day:
When I was a child, such people were called *show-offs* and, if their parents were the right kind of people, were firmly discouraged from continuing such behaviour, at least in public. Of course, in those days every child did not have a lawyer on call, ready to alert the media to the unconscionable torment suffered when her client was forbidden to moon the school assembly or wear a *Bush is a Poo Poo Head* shirt to daycare.
Today as Balloon Boy has proved, the only thing that matters to most people is being Noticed by the International Media. I predict that it will not be six months before somebody actually sends his baby aloft in a flying saucer balloon, and after the poor child falls to her death (it will be a girl this time), memorials will spring up all along the route the doomed balloon traced, and the location where the little one was smashed to flinders will bear a large and tasteless monument aand the subject of an After School Special.
It has become, unfortunately, the American Way.
What to watch for:
