The Halloween parade.

Just got back from the costume parade at Kate’s school. Your correspondent’s eyewitness report: No obvious baby-tart costumes, one borderline, no big deal. Overwhelmingly, it was cute kids having a cute time on a nice day. Among the highlights, Nancy Drew:


Ever-popular in Detroit, sports and rock ‘n’ roll:

One of the better baby costumes I’ve seen — li’l rock lobster:


Happy Halloween!

    Down here, that last kid would be a crawfish.

    Are you kidding? Down there, that kid would be a voodoo sacrifice. Why do you think the rest of the country is trying to slowly strangle you to death?

    I took pictures at the elementary school’s parade thru town here yesterday and posted them at flickr. Turns out those were the only kids in costumes I got to see yesterday. I spent $12 on candy and no one knocked on our door at the apartment.

    Ash, I thought Voodoo in NOLA was only lowbrow compared to Aztec worship. I had no idea they needed real virgins for rituals.

    I personally am very disappointed in the youth of today. In my little community, there is not a single smashed pumpkin; no cows have been coaxed to the top of any structure; nothing has been tp’d, tipped, or egged. Little brats are probably all attending Future Republicans of America meetings. In my day…
