Not since the infamous duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton in 1804 has a vice president of the United States so famously discharged a firearm.
The irony is that news of Burr's shot in Weehawken two centuries ago reached the presses faster than Vice President Dick Cheney's shot in Kenedy County during the information age.>>
I am reminded of something else, too, when I read these words.
They are extremely suggestive.
