C.C. Caller-Times: Video Simulation of Cheney's Hunting Accident

The staff at the Corpus Christi Caller-Times yesterday provided a great public service to people like me who are woefully unfamiliar with firearms and hunting practices.

> People with no hunting experience might have a tough time visualizing the damage Harry Whittington sustained when he was sprayed with birdshot Saturday afternoon.

In order to give us a better understanding of what may have happened on Saturday when Veep Dick Cheney accidentally shot lawyer Harry Whittington, the Caller-Times made a video simulation and posted it on their web site.

For a non-hunter who's never been around guns or handled one, I found the video explanation incredibly helpful. Kudos to the Caller-Times for this beneficial act of explanatory journalism.
