The Age of Excessive Politeness, or, Cheers Break Out At Netflix HQ

The Philadelphia Inquirer  informs us that this fellow is not one to trifle with. It seems that 
James Ciallella of south Philly was at a showing of the recent Brad Pitt flick "Benjamin Button" and a fellow in the next row was talking. 

A heated discussion 
ensued and it ended with Ciallella reaching into his sweatpants and pulling out a Kel-Tec .380 pistol whereupon he shot the fellow for his impertinence. Police were calledto the UA Riverview Theater on Columbus Boulevard to clean up the mess.

We here have no doubt that Cialella will be spending a certain amount of time in a fine correctional institution operated by the state of Pennsylvania, but this is probably the best thing that has happened to Netflix in a long time.

The Kel-Tec people, purveyors of cheap pistols to the trade-although parenthetically the P3AT has a locked breech lifted from the Walther P38- are probably sorry that this happened to one of their endorsers, but hey-this is America, and not everyone can be like Plaxico Burress and tote around a Glock.

Apparently, Ciallella was not one of the millions of law enforcement people who rely on Kel Tec for easily concealable pistols.
