Would I make fun of Dick Cheney when he shot a lawyer?

Yes, I will!

It has become clear that Dick's five deferments from being sent to Vietnam ("I had other priorities") were well served. The additional "friendly fire" would have eventually eaten into US military moral.

A more sober, and more boring, take on the story is at the New York Times. We do learn that Dick used a 28 gauge shotgun, but we remain woefully ignorant of the shot size. 7.5 or 8? Or was he going for distant shots with #6 shot?
