Slow News Weeks

It's been a bit slow lately. One of the recent non-news controversies involved Obama saying he shoots skeet at Camp David. The right wing demanded photographic evidence. Photographic evidence has been produced.

Yes, Virginia, he really is left-handed.

There was a great quote about how photographic evidence would calm everyone down, which the Daily Show or Colbert or whoever said, yeah, right, black man with a gun, _that_ will definitely calm everyone down.

Weird seeing someone shoot a long gun left handed. Not sure I ever have before.

The skeet shooting association's how-to page says that lefties do as well as righties.

"Left handed shooters do just as well as right."

I have never participated, altho it does seem like it would be fun.
