The day had been fun up until the point when Keith, the balloonist, had keeled over. The rising wind, the errant sparrow going through the canopy and the sight of the approaching coast had only been offset by the discovery of the parachute strapped to Keith's back. Only one of you can take it, who deserves it most? You are allowed one post to make your case before Friday. Once I have posted the beginning of Rebuttal you may make one more post to try to puncture others' arguments. Who will be first to stand up in the Balloon?
