Amy Fisher Is Sooo Jealous!

Mary Jo wasn't nearly as forgiving. Oh yeah, Amy shot her deliberately. My bad.
Compassion for Cheney as Victim Heads Home - New York Times: "The patient, Harry M. Whittington, an Austin lawyer and well-known figure in the state's Republican Party, thanked his doctors, praised the news media and expressed sorrow that the whole incident had become such a political flashpoint for the vice president.

'This past weekend encompassed all of us in a cloud of misfortune and sadness that is not easy to explain, especially to those who are not familiar with the great sport of quail hunting,' Mr. Whittington said.

'My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney and his family have had to go through this past week,' he added.

Dressed in a dark suit, white shirt and gold tie, with only a few scratches and purplish blotches visible above his crisp collar, Mr. Whittington walked out of the hospital and spoke for slightly more than three minutes, taking no questions."
Well, then he'd have to answer them and even for a lawyer, it must be difficult to stretch the truth into a lie when you aren't feeling up to par.

This is taking that stiff upper lip thing just a litt bit too far. Even with a name like Whittington the Brits won't adopt you. At 78 one may have a cavalier attitude about one's time on earth, but I doubt if that extends too all members of his family. There are accidents and there are accidents. Getting shot in the face doesn't usually entail the victim apologizing to the offender's family. Your family was worried about your life, Cheney's family was worried about his reputation and how it would affect their lives. They just don't want you suing...

or telling the truth.
