First, let's get it straight.  Even the doctor who first treated 
Whittington said that the wounds were superficial and "not in need of 
hospitalization."  It was only because those in Cheney's party insisted 
upon it that he was hospitalized.

Now, c'mon Larry, give 'em a break.  There are only 407 human beings 
living in all of Kenedy County, and besides Sherrif Ramiro Medellin, 
there are only four "constables" at assorted county crossroads.  Face 
it, there were more law enforcement officers in the hunting party than 
there were in all of the county.

Again, I think folks are listening too much to the wails and hollers of 
the national media who will always be quick to make "big" of an 
non-story.  That is hunting country, and accidents like that happen all 
the time.

By whom?

The fact of the matter is that it was really a non-story.  The media, 
like the minority party, is just so consumed by hit hatred of the 
sitting president that they will quite willingly ignore the fundamentals 
of journalism.
