They Don’t Know Their Left From Their Right

From Holden:

Harry Whittington was clearly blasted on the right side of his face, neck and torso by a drunken Dick Cheney’s shotgun.

So how come the official Texas Parks & Wildlife Department accident report on the shooting shows Whittington’s injuries on the left side of his body (diagram, mid-right of first page)?

Actually, the diagram shows Whittington sustaining the shotgun blast to both his left and his right side. The diagram of the front view of the body shows injuries sustained on the left side, while the portrait view shows injuries to the right side.

That’s some thorough reporting!
