"My kids never played Cowboys and Indians. The game has long fallen out of favor, being considered insensitive to Native Americans. But they did play Aliens. A lot. (They still do, in fact, mostly on Xbox.) Space is the new frontier where we can still hold onto our prejudices -- the ones that assert, 'My kind are good; the other kind are bad.' ... the only surprise about the film Cowboys and Aliens that opened this weekend is that no one thought of it any sooner."
