Cheney Shoots Hunter, Freed

Today's top story, other than a huge snowstorm in Yankeeland, was that Vice President Dick Cheney shot a fellow hunter up the road in Kenedy County. Blasted him good with a shotgun, by all accounts. Funny how he can run a war yet can't even figure how to blast a poor little quail without taking somebody out. At least President Bush only whacked a kildee one time, another federal offence, but not a real person. At last report, Cheney had been released from police custody.

Thought he was looking for better poll numbers by shooting a lawyer. Sad, he picked a 78 yr old one, and still could not get it done. All joking aside, his un-intended victim suffered a minor heart attack today due to pellets lodged near the heart. Cheney is trying to make things right though... He mailed in the $7 for the hunting stamp he did not have to hunt legally. Go figure? MLeahy

Aw man, I didn't hear about the lawyer Whittington having any complications and really, I wasn't meaning to be snide, other than I got the story the minute the Call-Times posted the article on the web. I hate it when good-natured fun turns sour. I'm still learning, brothers and sisters, and hopefully will for a few more decades.
