Fly Little Biracial Balloon Boy, Fly...

That Louisiana justice of the peace only needs to worry about biracial kids if they get trapped in runaway balloons.

No Justice, No Peace

Bardwell turned down Beth Humphrey and Terence McKay’s request to get married, saying, “I don’t do interracial marriages because I don’t want to put children in a situation they didn’t bring on themselves.” If by “situation,” he means having your parents drag you out on all the major networks to tell the story of a runaway balloon journey that you didn’t take, then yeah, that’s a concern. If Bardwell means being born and then later in life coming across a justice of the peace whose Internet is so slow that he still hasn’t heard that the Supreme Court settled Loving v. Virginia 42 years ago, then he has a point there, too.

Interracial Wife Swap

Now there’s a show that has “No.1 in its time slot” written all over it.

Last year, parents Mayumi and Richard Heene and their three sons were a hit on Wife Swap. It’s possible they got bit by the fame bug, and after seeing Jon & Kate Plus 8 implode, they figured the world was finally ready for a science/travel “reality” show about a “fringe” scientist, his wife and their three hapa sons.
