It's a holiday weekend and family is visiting. That has meant a lot of cooking and some Blu-ray viewing, including an action triple play: "The Dark Knight Rises," Marvel's The Avengers" and "RED." Also, "A Charlie Brown Christmas," which proved short on gunplay.
In today's Beacon Journal, and on Ohio.com, is a video column with some reminders of holiday fare. Pay special attention to the Dean Martin special, which is such a nutty time capsule. And, in Channels, I take a peek at the latest Kennedy Center Honors special, with Dustin Hoffman, Buddy Guy, David Letterman and more.
