I've been setting aside some of my favorite Halloween-y pictures and stories over the last week or so; expect a couple of big posts over the next few days. There aren't many entries into the Interzone's Barbie Costume Contest, but there are some good ones; I'll show you after the winner is announced. As I explained last year, if the holiday falls on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, it actually runs all three days. So, in a way, this is All Hallows Eve eve. The following is Clay Bennett's tribute to politics today, from The Chattanooga Times Free Press.The zombie would undoubtedly walk by the freakin' genius who scheduled Halloween on OSU's Homecoming Weekend, too. Sigh. It's going to be a noisy one. On the upside, it's supposed to rain through Saturday night, so hopefully most of the revelers will stay indoors.
