Depending on your news source, you may be under the impression that Vice President Cheney sought out to shoot his hunting buddy. If you are, let me fill you in on a small piece of important information: It was an accident! Every now and then, a national news source will say the key word, but it is so rare, I will reffer you to this article from the Jackson Hole Star Tribune.
Accidents happen. Are they at times painful? Yes. Can they be difficult to go through (for all involved)? Yes. Should hunters practice safe hunting? Yes. Does the White House have to tell us everything that happens right when it happens? No. Should the major media give it a rest already? You bet they should.
