Next: "Balloon Manufacturers Assn., UFO group denounce Heenes"

You know you're pariahs when even the ACLU wants nothing to do with you. In my in-box this morning was this release:

A number of recent news reports have included an erroneous assertion by Larimer County (Colo.) Sheriff Jim Alderden that the American Civil Liberties Union is representing the Heene Family of Fort Collins, Colo., which is reportedly being investigated for allegedly perpetrating a 'balloon boy hoax' for publicity purposes. Neither the ACLU nor the ACLU of Colorado has any involvement in the representation of the Heene family. Please direct any questions to the ACLU media line at media@aclu.org or (212) 549-2666.
