  Balloon-Crazy In the Office.

A little bit of excitement this afternoon as Sarah burst out shouting, "A balloon! A balloon!" and pointed to um, nearby skyscrapers. Nary a balloon in sight, and highly unlikely that one would be allowed to float around here after 9/11. She then had time to explain that she saw it being towed by a boat, and "Kerry" was written on it. Sure enough, we caught a glimpse of the balloon (although it wasn't nearly as big as a "real" hot-air balloon) as it was towed upriver and passed between the next set of buildings (we have somewhat obstructed views of the Hudson). Although we saw "Edward" written on it this time. Then the excitement died down as quickly as it started.
