So I apologize if anyone is upset by the completeness of the report, but if it is not to be for "public consumption", then it should not be out in the open world where it can be seen.

I guess it was one of those silver "Happy Birthday" type of balloons, huh? From what I hear, one of those can knock out a railroad single-handedly!

I stated an accurate observation. Nothing more, nothing less. If I stated the sky was blue, with the intent of just stating what I saw, am I exposing that? Nope. Same thing.
