Cheney slays 12 in 21-gun salute

By John Breneman

Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally gunned down a dozen spectators while performing a Memorial Day 21-gun salute at an undisclosed location.

Cheney apologized for the holiday mayhem, saying he thought he saw a quail out of the corner of his eye. A bald eagle remains in critical condition.

A spokesman said Cheney feels really bad about the incident, but remains upbeat about sending 2,500 U.S. soldiers to their deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The vice president, who wisely obtained five deferments to avoid going to Vietnam as a young man, complained that the media always ignores all the "good news" on Memorial Day.

Meanwhile President George W. Bush, who wisely used family connections to avoid going to Vietnam as a young man, gave a speech saluting "the fallen" whom he had pushed into battle.
