And everyone in the community saw how their Docs were being treated and didn't like it, and everyone watching on TV saw how they were being badgered and didn't like it.........this is BAD for the media.

Their approval ratings of 23% just went down to 19%....... (just made those numbers up. ;)

A guard at the door is not a bad idea.

Who knows what lengths Cheney's enemies would go to, to see Whittington die from this accident?

The hospital scene from "The Godfather" comes to mind.

Minor heart attack .. prayers for him. May God grant him healing and recovery.

Yesterday's reports indicated he (the shooting victim) did not identify himself while returning from retrieving his downed bird, which safety protocols require. I also don't know why they weren't hunting with bird dogs.

Safety procedures are not there for window dressing. They're there for a reason. Hunters ignore them at their peril. Looks like he got what was coming to him.

It's the size of the shot, not the gauge of the round. You could have a 28 gauge rifled slug, which would be as big around as your fingertip. This was very small #9 shot, and your hubby was correct on the size.

He just explained the different sizes .. he even drew a picture of the different sizes for me

The infection question was a good one. Let's hope it does not, but an infection is not unlikely, and could pose a serious problem.

I honestly don't know what more these "reporters" could do to look more stupid.

Hello,

I can only hope that the poor man has not had access to a TV in the hospital. If he is aware of how his good friend, the Vice President, has been treated by the press, that could bring on a heart attack all by itself.

Glad to be here, MOgirl

Infection? Whittington is already on major antibiotics, and has been since Day One. Infection is the least of their worries.

That was when I was writing for computer magazines. The PR flacks were all these 20-something bubble-headed hotties who had just finished journalism school. Buncha valley girls. They all had their PR jargon down pat.

I was the bane of their existence, since I had a really good position at a major magazine. I hated jargon, and regularly refused to talk to them, insisting on talking to someone who actually knew something.

Whittington will recover and we will survive this 48-hour media onslaught.

We survived the post-election 2000 drama, with everything on Earth arrayed against us, for 6 or more weeks; we'll survive this too.

So one or some bird shot penetrated to his heart? I thought this guy was supposedly shot at 30 yards with #9 shot? Something does not add up here.

You obviously aren't paying attention OR you're being an idiot. hmmmmmmm???

More like the head of a pin

8 shot ==> .09 inch or 2.29mm

9 shot ==> .08 inch or 2.03mm

Ultimate responsibility always rests with the person pulling the trigger. This was obviously an accident though.
