Nobody decorates much for Halloween on my street. We used to, but the endless line of dark houses to either side of us discouraged Trick or Treaters from making the long walk so we don't even bother to give out candy any more.
I did see one house on my block that's pretty scary, though.....
Completely unscientific and just an observation on my part: This is the only pro-Obama sign in my entire neighborhood. I spend at least 10-11 hours a day driving around various parts of the town where I work. Rich areas, poor areas... I eventually visit them all. Back in the ramp up for the 2008 elections there was a pretty even mix of Obama signs vs. McCain signs. This year I can count the number of Obama signs that I've seen on two hands.
A. Support for Obama is significantly lower here than in 08.
B. The people that support Obama are just too damned embarassed to express it openly.
