So now it's Monday....

Okay. So the VP shot a guy. The media has a 24 hour field day and one reporter actually has the gall to ask "if it would be a more serious story if the man shot had died...." Ahem. So much for the Fourth Estate and intellectual acuity. *sigh* I am not a big hunter myself although many people in more rural areas of our state are as if their right. Hunting is a sport, it has common sense rules which if everyone adheres to them, nobody gets hurt. You never ever walk in the line of fire. Never. never ......Never. Bird and Buckshot scatter a wide range so you really shouldn't even get close to the shooter. This guy did and he caught a load of shot. I am glad he didn't die and I am sorry he was hurt. I am sure that the VP feels the same way. The Total Idiots that are calling for his resignation or who, like the Brady's, are misguided to the point that they seem to feel this was a case of the VP deliberately shooting someone, as in assault with a deadly weapon, need to look into the case a little be more closely. It's scary and sad, but not an assault. The victim can press civil charges if he wants, but usually unless the injury is life threatening to the point that survivors enter the picture, the case is settled by insurance companies and everyone goes their own way. I think Shakespeare had it right, only he was talking about actors "Full of sound and fury signifying NOTHING......"
