When the executive branch goes wild

Bad week for the executive branch of government ...

Vice President Dick Cheney shoots a lawyer ... lawyer has heart attack ... Cheney hunting license lacks proper stamp ...

Cheney's chief of staff tells grand jury he was authorized to leak classified material to justify Iraq invasion ...

Top-ranking CIA Mideast analyst says Bush/Cheney Administration distorted and politicized intelligence in run-up to Iraq invasion ...

AND IF ALL THAT IS NOT ENOUGH, President Bush hosts the National Champion Texas Longhorns at the White House and it is revealed that the Chief Executive fell asleep during the third quarter of the Rose Bowl (though he awoke to catch the end of the game.) He took a nap? During the Rose Bowl?

Hey, Banjo, I heard all about this CIA guy, he was one of the people at the CIA who was working against the invasion of Iraq from the beginning, even when we really did think Saddam had stockpiled his remaining WMDs there rather than in, say, Syria.

I won't presume to lecture a Texas audience here at the Brazosport News on hunting safety, but if you google "hunting safety line of fire" you get stories from all over the country about being hit or killed this way.

I recall my father keeping us kids out of some of his business-related hunting expeditions, for one because he was worried the clients he was courting by taking them to the deer lease on hunting trips might not be safe hunting partners, and might accidentally mistake one of us kids for a deer or pepper us with shot during a quail hunt or a dove hunt.

His first rule of safety was always, "Know your hunting partners."
