A Modern-Day Fiefdom

Some interesting facts about Kenedy County, TX (semi-ironic name, no?). Apparently, it's maintained by the government as a playground for the well-heeled and well-connected.

Nice, to see tax dollars put to such use.

Also makes it understandable why no one pushed Cheney for a breathalyzer test (just to keep the record clear that there was no drinking involved, since, you know, Dick has been know to kinda like his sauce, and questions might get asked, so it would be a good idea to have some proof otherwise) when it mattered, as in, immediately after the hunting accident.

Has any asked this, yet: If you or I accidentally shot a man, then didn't report it to the local authorities until, oh, the next morning, would we be in some type of hot water?

Jus' wonderin.....

Actually the authorities were notified within a hour or so. It is the media (who often thinks they are the ultimate authority) which wasn't notified until the next day.

About the other details, I consider the no breathalizer a bigger unknown factor. The VP should have insisted on a breathalizer. Knowing how things can look he should have made sure that question was off the table. Hell, I'm a supporter and even I wouldn't bet money that he didn't have more than the one beer he is admitting.

Sure the media is being silly in whining about not getting a call right away, but if he was going to hang a curve ball he can't act surprised when the opposition swings at it.
