Can we please let this be the final word on the matter?
The thing that bothers me the most about people like Richard Heene is that, in the end, they get exactly what they want. He is clearly an attention whore motivated by a desire to be famous. We are condemning his actions yet giving him what he craves because no one can stop talking about him, and his face is constantly on the news – both national and local.
Of course, none of this is to be outdone by the fact that he wasted who knows how much tax payer money in the law enforcements’ efforts to “find” his son and that his poor kids are growing up in an environment where this behavior is the norm. I pray there are fewer people like him in the world than I fear there are.
I’m not really a fan of passing judgement on people (really, who am I to criticize?)…but what a jackass.
