More on Cheney hunting accident
Egad--as further proof of how slow the news is, Drudge reports that the mainstream media plans a full court press next week on the Cheney hunting accident. It'll be the cover story for both Time and Newsweek, no less. UPDATE: Glenn Reynolds has an article in the Guardian on this, commenting on the media's instinct for the capillary.
In the meantime, here's a webpage that replicates the shot patterns and concludes the accident happened as was reported -- the shot spread would be typical of 30 yards or so and not of any closer distance.
That matches my observation -- but is probably beyond the MSM, which at various times described Cheney as shooting "buckshot," the victim as being hit by 200 pellets, etc., etc.
