"I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates who said.......I drank what?"
Did anyone else have a significant drop-off in their number of trick-or-treater's last night?
We got about 40 kids. Pretty much the same as the last few years. When I was a kid, you couldn't close the door because there was a constant stream of trick-or-treaters. I remember walking down the street and the neighborhood was full of so many kids, cars couldn't get through. We had to stand in line at some houses because there were so many of us. And none of us went with our parents. Even at 6 years old, we were trick-or-treating by ourselves. It was no big deal.
Not anymore. Almost every kid that came to my door had a parent standing on the sidewalk with mace and a cellphone in their nervous hands. (anyone else listen to Bob & Tom?) Many were actually DRIVING their kids door to door.
Things just aren't the same anymore...

Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
