This whole story is just making me angry.
A father, who likes to chase storms with his children, putting them in harms way on a regular basis already gets the hairs on the back of my neck standing. But really?! How could Falcon Heene's father, after the huge silver mylar balloon contraption that he had been tinkering with in his yard became untethered, not have known for sure if his child was or was not aboard. And, though I don't have an attic, I would assume that it would be one of the first places that my kid might hide out. Seriously.Sheesh!
I don't know if it's worse if this is all just a publicity stunt, or simply neglectful parenting.
Feel free to berate me for being close minded, or to jump on my bandwagon.
