There’s a Dick Cheney Joke In Here Somewhere, But It Seems So Mean

Lafayette fifth-grader Dreyson LeDoux, lost an eye Sunday

when another boy shot him during a state-run pheasant hunt for kids. Sure, it was an accident, but it begs the question: Why is it legal for kids to tote shotguns and aim them at fast-moving birds ? Whatever happened to fifth-graders finding fulfillment in a game of good old Duck Hunt? (It’s still available here if you’d like to relive one of the risk-free joys of your youth.)
