Diane Sawyer interviews Falcon Heene on "Good...
SAWYER: For several hours last week, America was gripped by the story of a little boy who apparently floated away from his family. The news went like this: six-year-old Falcon Heene of Fort Collins, Colorado stepped into his father's weather balloon, untethered it, and went... up. The local sheriff was told by Falcon's brother that Falcon was inside. Only hours later, when the balloon landed, did authorities find that Falcon wasn't inside. People feared the worst - that Falcon had fallen from the balloon. That evening, an entire nation was relieved to find out six-year-old Falcon was, in fact, hiding in the attic above his garage. Now with us is Falcon Heene and his family. Hello, Falcon.
SAWYER: Why the fuck did you do that?
FALCON: Um, because I'm six?
FALCON: And my family was on "Wife Swap" once, which is an ABC property, so that's why we're here, talking to you exclusively, ABC newswoman.
FALCON: And also, the circumstances of my non-floatawayedness are similar to the movie "Up," produced by Pixar, which is owned by Disney, which also owns ABC.
SAWYER: So what you're trying to say is...
FALCON: "Up" is coming to DVD November 20th. [Busts out DVD copy.] Just in time for the holidays!
SAWYER: Jesus H. Christ. Are you holding up a copy?
FALCON: Yes. Camera two, you have this? Make sure you get the cover.
SAWYER: All right, that's enough. Here's Chris Cuomo with the day's other news. Chris?
CUOMO: I fucking LOVE "Up"!
Time for the Monday Choir Rant
inteawetrust: There are three women who sit behind me in choir (whom I hope never, ever read this blog.) They travel in a pack, take offense at every one of the director’s corrections as though he’s personally out to get them and, most annoyingly of all, they never stop talking for the entire rehearsal. It makes me insane. It’s the kind of behavior I’d expect from the junior high girls’ choir...
