New York Times (Blog): Cheney's Staff Says He Never Saw Confederate Flag -- "Vice President Dick Cheney is embroiled in yet another hunting-related controversy. The vice president made a daylong hunting trip on Monday to the Clove Valley Rod and Gun Club, an exclusive mountainside establishment in Union Vale, N.Y. At least one eagle-eyed photographer captured images of a Confederate battle flag hanging in plain view in a garage attached to the club's headquarters."
