Dick Cheney Does Not Kill Bird Dead

This one came through the wire Saturday evening but apparently VP Dick Cheney blasted prominent Austin, TX lawyer Harry Whittington in the face with a shotgun shell as the two were out hunting quail on Saturday. He didn't die. Whittington, we're also aware, is the presiding officer of the Texas state Funeral Service Commission--a position he's held since 1999. We should point out that Whittington was forced to pay $55,000 to a whistleblower who alleged that he and his fellow commisioners allowed embalmers to inject dead people with formaldehyde and other sundry chemicals without proper license. Jesus.
  • "Cheney Accidentally Shoots Fellow Hunter" [NYT]
  • Give Harry a call and wish him a speedy recovery
    • Business: (512) 476-5313
    • Home: (512) 419-1950
  • Or send him a get well card
    • 3606 Mount Bonnell Rd; Austin, TX. 78731
  • Hell, why not order some formaldehyde yourself from a completely unreliable source in Ghana and put it in your get well card? [tradekey]
