The horror of Halloween

Rita MartinSilverthorne

In this season of nasty, mudslinging politics, the last thing that I wanted to see (or should have expected to see) was a truck decked out in “Vote for John Kerry” stickers and nasty slogans about George Bush at Trick or Treat Street in Frisco. Honestly, could the person who owned that vehicle have left it at home for one night, especially a night of make believe and pretend for children?The whole thing made me ill. If I were going to vote for John Kerry, I will not now because of the tactics of this one supporter.I, like everyone else, am sick and tired of the election season and ready for it all to be over.This has been a particularly nasty one, both on the Democratic and Republican sides. There could have been one night before the election when all things politic could have been put aside and let the general public enjoy an evening without any particular political message being thrown in their face.I wonder why our children do not want to get involved in politics when the adults of our society act more like children than the children do?I am all for free speech, but there is a time and place for everything and Trick or Treat Street was not one of them for a political party’s agenda.
