A hunter at the Washington Post

Here's an article which goes into the sort of detail I wanted to see about Cheney's hunting accident. If I've got this straight, it's a very easy sort of error to make, but one should *not* turn and shoot because there's a real chance one will not react quickly enough if one now has a member of one's party in the line of fire.

The writer of the column finishes by saying that it's a specifically male combination of traits which can lead to that error, but there are women who hunt and I bet that they're also at risk for getting caught up in the pleasure of following a target perfectly.
