It's Sunday afternoon, the TV is on, and I'm thumb surfing through channels. And right there on the small screen is little Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) doing some target practice with a pump action BB gun 20 minutes into the Christmas favorite, Home Alone.
All I could think was how grateful we should be that he didn't have access to a real gun. He would have dispatched those two burglars the first time they stepped into the house. The movie would have been over in about half an hour. And worst of all, there would have been no "Home Alone" 2 through 5 or the video game. The horror.
