Glad Cheney Was In Texas

While Vice President Cheney was shooting quail and his hunting partners on the Armstrong Ranch in Texas, my tiny Florida hometown was having a hunting fiasco of its own:

In order to quash a long-standing wild chicken problem in the southwest part of town, the city of High Springs invoked the final solution and sent armed firefighters through the neighborhood shooting chickens. Residents were not informed of the residential hunt beforehand, and not a few were noticeably upset to find men with .22 caliber rifles running through their yards blasting away at feral chickens. Read the full story in its hilarity in the High Springs Herald.

Money quote: "Anything that was moving they were shooting."
