A poll of 883 South Dakota bird hunters, conducted before Vice President Dick Cheney's weekend hunting accident, asked: "Have you ever been peppered with shotgun BBs?"
It so happens 484 of the hunters, or about 55 percent, replied "yes." 365 of them said they were wearing orange vests when sprayed.
The poll was conducted by Pheasant Country ("where pheasant hunters come to roost"), a Web site sponsored by the Sioux Falls Argus-Leader newspaper.
Now, if we could only stop our fearless leaders from shooting themselves in the �ars�; by staying closer to home for meetings, putting shareholders first, spending cash for the benefit of shareholders, and spending some of their own cash in a similar fashion to current shareholders. Let�s hope the upcoming Roth presentations are fruitful.
