    Authorities say a teenage girl has been killed in a hunting accident in Alabama. News outlets report the 15-year-old was shot on Monday about 20 miles southwest of Birmingham. Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies believe the girl and an adult family friend had been on a youth hunt. Authorities say the girl climbed down from a tree stand while they prepared to leave. As the friend passed down her rifle, deputies say the gun fired and struck the teen.
  • Sarah Palin on Dick Cheney's worst act as VP: shooting another hunter

    CBS anchor Katie Couric’s series of interviews with Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin made headlines nearly every day in the last week, and the final installment that airs this evening will likely be no exception. As part of the "Vice Presidential Questions" series running on "CBS Evening News," Couric asked both Palin and her Democratic counterpart, Sen. Joe Biden, to name the best thing and the worst thing Vice President Dick Cheney has done in office. Palin cited Cheney’s support for the troops as his best accomplishment. The worst, she said: “I guess that would have been the duck...
  • Cheney met with police earlier? (Vanity)

    02/19/2006 7:50:11 AM PST · by DaveLoneRanger · 11 replies · 607+ views
    News sources are constantly abuzz and saying that Cheney did not meet with police for hours after the incident. I remember hearing (on Fox or elsewhere) that the sequence of events is not at all how the media describe it, and that the police came and spoke with Cheney, or were the ones who decided what time they came to speak to him. I've been searching news sources, and cannot find it (as one would expect if it were the truth about Cheney). Any Freeper help in reference?

    For all of us at this "small newspaper in South Texas" or as the host of MSNBC's "The Situation" Tucker Carlson says "podunk paper," it's enlightening — and sometimes embarrassing — to look at our big brothers and sisters in the national media on a story we each are covering. The first step we could all see coming. Someone should have given White House press secretary Scott McClellan a blindfold as he stood at the podium Monday afternoon. The White House press corps spent the previous day stewing about how the White House had failed to deliver a press conference...

    The irregular heartbeat suffered Tuesday by the 78-year-old lawyer shot by Vice President Dick Cheney — apparently caused by a birdshot pellet lodged in or next to his heart — likely will not require surgery or long-term medication, a Ben Taub trauma surgeon said. "We see a shotgun wound almost once a week here," said Dr. Kenneth Mattox, chief of staff at Ben Taub General Hospital, one of Houston's leading trauma centers. "For a bullet the size of a birdshot pellet to create atrial fibrillation would be a little unusual. I'm not saying it didn't happen. Theoretically, it could happen."...

    The press has spent so much time this week obsessing over Dick Cheney's hunting accident that some reporters have been rendered completely oblivious to other important news developments. After delivering yet another breathless report on Cheneygate Thursday morning, usually reliable ABC Radio News reporter Ann Compton was caught clueless about the takeover of six major U.S. ports by a Dubai company based in the United Arab Emirates - a country said to have ties to terrorism. Compton's exchange with WABC Radio's John Gambling went like this: GAMBLNG: What else [besides Cheneygate] is being talked about in the White House? COMPTON:...
  • Cheney Hunting Accident Timeline

    With all the bs coming out of the media about Vice President Cheney's hunting accident last weekend I wanted to get a better handle on what really happened. I have searched around for a while to find a well-sourced timeline for Cheney's hunting accident and subsequent actions but I haven't been able to produce one. Here is what I have been able to come up with: Approx 5:50 pm on 2/11/06: Cheney accidentally shoots hunting another member of his hunting party. Emergency medical aid is immediately provided and the injured person is transported to the nearest hospital. Local authorities are...

    To prove Vice President Dick Cheney's hunting accident is a full-fledged scandal, just how far are desperate liberal media types willing to go? Proving nothing is off the table, Lawrence O'Donnell of MSNBC and McLaughlin Group fame wants the public to believe Cheney had been drinking! Beyond Dr. Pepper, is there an eyewitness report of anything consumed in liquid form? No. Is there any other way to substantiate this allegation? Nope. Evidence, who needs evidence? On the left, it's conspiracy-huntin' season. Without hesitation, one could easily expect the left to go ballistic were conservatives to make similar baseless charges against...

  • The Indomitable 'Dame Qui Boite'-(Virginia Hall, "Wild Bill" Donavan's American WWII lady OSS agent)

    The final item in the Sept. 30, 1944 "Activity Report of Virginia Hall," American intelligence agent, was No. XV: "Were you decorated in the Field?" "No," she had typed, "nor any reason to be." The answer was typical of her matter-of-fact sense of duty. But William J. Donovan, known to a generation of spies as "Wild Bill," begged to differ. On May 12, 1945, Maj. Gen. Donovan, director of the U.S. Office of Strategic Services, informed President Harry Truman that Hall was, for her extraordinary heroism, to receive the Distinguished Service Cross -- second only to the Medal of Honor....

    MARTIN - Brad Johnson told his awful story late Tuesday afternoon, remembering in a soft, unsteady voice the rifle shot that took a stranger's life and changed his own forever. "I have a lot of questions to God about why this thing had to happen," the 51-year-old Martin-area farmer said during a telephone interview from his home. "It's a terrible thing. It's a freak thing. To me, it's impossible that it could even happen." But it did happen last Friday afternoon, in a blurred convergence of poor judgment and fickle chance that left 39-year-old Jay Torgerson of Custer lying in...
