Republican gubernatorial candidate George W. Bush hammered Gov. Ann Richards on crime Thursday, then inadvertently broke the law by shooting a killdeer bird on the first day of dove hunting season. "I thought it was a dove." the son of former President George Bush said. A spokesman said Bush would be fined $130. Before the trip, Bush took aim at the Democratic governor, contending a new penal code she signed that took effect Thursday actually reduces prison time.
