Happy Halloween

This is the scariest jack o'lantern I've ever seen.

I just want to take this moment to ask everybody to do a couple of things:

1) When you're out trick-or-treating with your kids, take them to people's houses in your neighborhood that you're friendly enough with to chide them to vote next week. Not just to vote, but to vote for progressive candidates (Particularly Pete Ashdown and Christian Burridge). Don't be a jackass and start fights with your neighbors, but just remind them who best represents the values of your neighborhood. I can guarantee that unless you live in a neighborhood full of mansions and corporate headquarters, Republicans don't represent the values of your neighborhood.

2) Take the time for this holiday to treat yourself and go see a movie. And if you're fortunate enough to be in an area playing "Death of a President" go see that. If not, I can't recommend "The Departed" and "The Prestige" enough.

That is all.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween.
