The print version of this story in today's edition had a great line:
"Despite a close encounter with a true tragic ending, and pure luck that his fellow actor was a poor shot, Kellerman plans on being back on stage...."
Yes, and it was also 'lucky' that they didn't update Steinbeck's story to make the gun a Glock with a full magazine or an Uzi.
And since this is the Senior Theater, I'm sure the gun's owner, Natalie Gundrum, is a nice old lady who has a pillow on her couch, embroidered with "Kill 'Em All, Let God Sort 'Em Out."
Just another reason we should all support the 2nd Amendment....
"I have just five words for you. From my cold, dead hands." Natalie Gundrum
