No shotgunfreude for Harry

Aside from all else, I can't help but feel bad for Harry Whittington. The ridiculous line about him being moved back to intensive care purely for privacy is a great indicator that we really have no idea how badly he's doing now. If he feels so great he's doing billable legal work in bed, how come no one outside of the (apparently beholden) hospital staff has seen him? While everyone cackles and speculates about Cheney, this poor guy is 78, has "less than 150 or 200" shotgun pellets embedded in his body, permanently, including one in his heart and one in his liver, and has had a "mild cardiac event" because of it. He's got to be hurting. Hopefully he really is recovering as well as they say.
