Child safety is the real scare of this Halloween
Halloween is next week, and I can't say I'm really looking forward to it. I don't have any kids at home, and where we live now we're not likely to get trick or treaters, so the holiday doesn't really affect me directly at all. But I overheard a woman at the gym ask another if she was taking her trick-or-treat-age kid out, and she said she was taking him to Davis Islands. I guess that's one place that seems safe now.
