A Hero Is a Victim That Doesn’t Sue


The family injured in the Macy’s Parade balloon accident isn’t suing.
Stephen Chamberlain, father of 11-year-old Sarah and 26-year-old Mary,
who were not seriously injured in the incident, says it was “a freak
accident,” and “accidents just happen.” God bless you and yours, sir.
(Thanks, e-mailer Andrew.)

Meanwhile, I have discovered a serious downside to getting one’s news
primarily from the radio. I spent most of the weekend wondering why
Macy’s put an Eminem balloon in their parade.
