This town is so liberal...

In the last local election, two Democrats competed for the same seat and the Republican still couldn't win. That didn't stop our yard sign from getting stolen, though. My parents were incensed and went right out to get a new one. I guess we're just lucky we don't live in the next town over, which banned yard signs altogether. (Seriously, the only yard sign that won't get you in trouble there is a "For Sale" sign. Apparently the council so wanted the town to be free of ugly clutter that they ignored the advice of their own lawyer on the perils of restricting political speech.)

Not that our town doesn't do weird stuff sometimes; kids this year were restricted to trick-or-treating between the hours of 3 and 6 pm. On Saturday.

Speaking of Halloween, I went to visit my sister for her frat's Halloween party on Friday night. It's a very cool group - several of them coordinated to dress up as characters from Neil Gaiman's Sandman series. They wound up with six of the seven Endless (nobody really wanted to dress up as Despair, for obvious reasons) plus Hippolyta and Nuala (the latter played by a guy in drag). Also, someone made his own paper-mache helmet to come as the Rocketeer. It was great.
