I did a post two days ago about something that was said on the house floor by Democrat Jere Hargrove it was a harmless "Shot across the bow" at republicans and VP Dick Cheney's hunting accident as well as at himself.
I did not think he meant any real harm, I don't think he wanted or expected himself or any Democrats to go hunting so they could be shot by the VP .I don't think he meant any harm or ill will to the man shot or people in his profession (Jere is also a lawyer). It was a joke. A poke in fun directed at himself. The comments made about Ted Kennedy were mine directed at myself. I have seen or read several articles and cartoons on this subject. I don't think the reporters or artists meant any ill will to the man shot or wish him dead. I have spoken with Jere and he assures me this was the case with the comments he made as was the case with the comments I made.
It was all good natured ribbing out of context with no ill will intended from any one to any one. I hope in the future we continue to get as much feedback on the issues facing the many people of our state as we did about this story.
