Come Come Now, Mr. Barry

Ryan O'Neal has been arrested for assaulting his son with a handgun. I sort of thought he should be arrested after I sat through Barry Lyndon.

I laughed out loud at that one.

I know what patricide is, but is there a word filicide or something that describes what ryan apparently attempted to do?

Yup; you guessed exactly right.

Perhaps it's a case of lessons learned--in Barry Lyndon, O'Neal's character was crippled after refusing to fire at his stepson in a duel.
