Everyone else is being judge and jury on this accident. So we might as well as add our two cents worth. Bottom line - Cheney is responsible when he pulls the trigger. Extenuating cirumstances? Perhaps but I'll hold judgement until the facts are in. Incidently, Whittington has suffered a minor heart attack because bird shot lodged in him moved to his heart. He is being monitored. I am sure Cheney must feel like a piece of crap over this whole ordeal - wouldn't you?
