  •  It's surprising more people weren't hurt. (none)
    In regards to the time of day, and light conditions, that sets off my Oh My God Klaxon.

    In a Texas winter twilight, the sky is still light but the ground is already in shadows. They were down on the ground where the light was already fading... and they're shooting?

    My GOD that's foolish.

    Also, Cheney just got out of the car? He hadn't been well enough to walk out to the area he was going to hunt in? Or he was hurried? So that's a good time to hunt?

    Had he taken time to take in his surroundings - terrain, light, other people, obstacles, dogs?

    What's amazing is Mr. Whittington wasn't killed outright. Or more people weren't.

    •  Nope, they're driving (4.00)
      from point to point, with the host saying, "Drive over there, the boys have just let a bunch of em out of their cages, we can bag us a bunch of em in just a few minutes."  So a few minutes of absolute mayhem with birds barely out of their confinement before they're blasted to bits, and it's back in the SUVs for more mint juleps while Rastus and Felipe come in behind with the shovels and the wheelbarrows to clean up the "debris."
      •  Gah. (none)
        Why don't they just shoot the birds while they're in a cage, and have done with it?

        I thought this was sport.

        Sheesh. Fuckin' lazy bastards.
