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.
