This Just In: Our Long National Nightmare Is Just Beginning

Saturday, October 31, 2015, will be All Hallows' Eve (aka Halloween) with allusions to ghost, goblins, and other unworldly creatures. Tom Tomorrow (Dan Perkins) finds the unworldly among our political candidates. And, just as there will be a Halloween next year and the year after, the ghastly parade will continue. The votes in 2016 will just be counted and the speculation about 2020 will begin. The horror of it all. If this is a (fair & balanced) portrayal of horror, so be it.
