Sex and Candy

Halloween again. All holidays should be based around the idea of candy as currency. My sons chose the following for their costume themes this year: Nathan is a skateboarder from the Dogtown era; Henry is, for the third straight year, the grim reaper. There was a report on TV about how costumes for women (and girls) are now less about being scary and more about being sexy. I guess the theory is that ghosts and vampires are pretty tame compared to all of the crap out in the real world that can scare the hell out of us. So if a teenage girl wants to scare somebody, she can at least scare her parents.
