Happy Halloween?

Good morning, Netizens…

Egods! Cartoonist David Horsey has struck paydirt on the theme of Halloween. Could it be possible that Dino Rossi is the opponent or, by comparison, could that be Pork Barrel Patty? It’s hard to tell this Halloween. They each are taking their shots at one another, so much so that it is difficult to tell one side from the other.

This cartoon does remind me of the George Bush versus Al Gore Presidential election.

What is missing here are the Tea Party members, clanging their gongs and bellowing their imprecations about the Democrats.

I can hardly wait until the election is over.


Child molestation at Halloween…

Good morning, Netizens…

Here’s an idea from the Associated Press Wire we in Spokane might put to good use.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Registered sex offenders in a northern Alabama city won’t have a hard time making Halloween plans.

They’re expected to attend a mandatory meeting hosted by state and federal probation officers next Saturday from 5:30 to 9 p.m.

That conveniently falls in the time most children in Huntsville will be out trick-or-treating.

The Huntsville Times reports that the educational program will review both state and federal sex offenders laws. It’s meant to encourage accountability and behavior changes in the offenders.

Accountability? Behavior change? What a novel concept for convicted sex offenders and predators in Spokane! Of course, my built-in distrust of the system makes me wonder if the ACLU might not step in and cry such an arrangement was a violation of the predator’s civil liberties. After all, they have completed their prison sentences and are no longer a threat to society’s children, right?

On the other hand, if we organized a mandatory meeting for all sexual predators in Spokane on Halloween, all under the aegis of an educational program, perhaps the sheer number of convicted predators that might show up might scare the bejesus out of parents throughout the Spokane region into sending predators a strong warning note.

WARNING! Spokane is a do-not-molest zone. The rights of our kids are more important to us than your civil liberties.
