WASHINGTON, D.C. - A white house source stated that Congress is
considering awarding Vice-President Dick Cheney the Medal of Freedom, the
nation's highest civilian commendation, for his act of bravery in shooting an attorney. The
source was quoted to say, " All Americans have wanted to shoot a lawyer at one time or
another and Cheney actually had the guts to do it".
In a related story, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, which
issues hunting licenses, said that it will start requiring hunters, wishing to bag a
lawyer, to have the new "lawyer's stamp" on their hunting license. Currently Texas hunters
are required to carry stamps for hunting birds, deer, and bear, at a cost of $7 annually.
The new "lawyers stamp" will cost $100, but open season will be all year long. The
department further stated that although the "lawyers stamp" comes at hefty price, sales
have been brisk and it is believed it will generate annual revenues in excess of $3
billion dollars the first year. Other states are considering similar hunting stamps.
