From CNN.com:
The man shot by Vice President Dick Cheney today apologized for what Cheney and his family have had to endure since the weekend hunting accident in Texas. Harry Whittington, 78, said: "Whatever activities we pursue and regardless of how experienced, careful and dedicated we are, accidents do and will happen." Whittington, speaking to reporters outside the hospital where he was treated, added: "My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney and his family have had to go through this week."

For the record, Whittington spent several days in a hospital recouperating from potentially lethal wounds inflicted by Vice President Dick Cheney. The 78 year-old Whittington also suffered a heart attack due to complications from injuries sustained in the mishap.

On the other hand, Vice President Cheney occupied himself this week carefully crafting his version of events, paying the state of Texas for a small game license post-shooting spree, and taping a highly publicized and highly edited interview with Fox News' Brit Hume.
