It’s a very special 4 year anniversary.
When former Vice President Dick Cheney shot a 78-year-old man in the face, I was deciding whether or not to renew my old site, writechic.com.
Harry M. Whittington, born March 3, 1927, received international media attention on February 11, 2006. He was shot in the face by Dick while hunting quail with two women on a ranch in Corpus Christi, Texas.
Bird shot! Ouch!
On February 14, 2006, Whittington suffered a non-fatal heart attack because at least one lead-shot pellet lodged in or near his heart.
Whittington apologized publicly to Cheney in a press conference.
Cheney holed up in his man-size safe like a little sissy girl until finally being coaxed out on February 15th by Fox News. Cheney told the interviewing reporter the experience was the most horrible thing HE had ever been through.
Before Dick, a sitting Vice President has not shot a man since the Aaron Burr-Alexander Hamilton duel. That was 1804.
