Happy Apologize for Getting Shot in the Face Day!

WriteChic is onto something big with her holiday idea:

Harry M. Whittington (born March 3, 1927) is the American lawyer and real estate investor who received international media attention on February 11, 2006.  He was shot in the face by Vice President Dick Cheney while hunting quail with two women on a ranch in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Harry’s decision to apologize for getting shot by a possibly drunk VP is a darkly humorous reminder that power not only corrupts the bullies, it corrupts the victims as well.  Happy AGSF Day!

  1. I’m so glad to see you’re still at this. Thankless work at times but there are a lot of things that need to be said.

    I’ve always been happy whenever Dave Letterman says something about one of the most self-serving VP’s this country has ever known. Spiro Agnew was small-time next to Richard Bruce “Dick” Cheney.

    Would I have spent some time at least answering questions down at the local police office? You bet. Drunk? I’ll bet he has no trouble getting another hunting license in Texas.

    Corruption shows itself in the small things first.
