"This past weekend encompassed all of us in a cloud of misfortune and a sadness that is not easy to explain, especially to those who are not familiar with the great sport of quail hunting," said Austin attorney Harry Whittington, who was discharged from the hospital Friday. "We all assume certain risks in whatever we do ... accidents do and will happen and that's what happened."
He added: "My family and I are deeply sorry for all Vice President Cheney and his family had to deal with this week. ...We hope he will continue to come to Texas and seek the relaxation he deserves."
Would that we were all as forgiving as Mr. Whittington. The media expects the man to join their chorus calling for Cheney's head, and he doesn't oblige. Even though it was he, and not the press, who got the business end of the rifle.
