Re: “New Complaint Directed at Election Commission Administration

This is one of two things: Either this is incompetence at a level not yet seen, or it is deliberate malfeasance on the part of Holden.

You decide.

Re: “Local Man Concerned About Who Gets Free Candy

A few 10/31's ago I collected a dozen toddler and baby shoes from Goodwill and spread them along leading up to a torn screen door with a bowl of gingerbread outside. Took a few months to cool off the neighbors.

Re: “Local Man Concerned About Who Gets Free Candy

You can, of course, spare yourself all this heartache by attending your local church's trunk or treat, where all the children dress like disciples and apostles. Just don't go as, you know, one of the plagues of Egypt or anything like that. My fourth horseman of the apocalypse didn't go over very well last year, especially as I had my son's jazz band in the parking lot blowing trumpets of doom as I clattered into the Fellowship Hall astride my pale horse, Silver. Half the people threw off their clothes and waited to be Raptured. It was embarrassing to say the least.

Re: “Local Man Concerned About Who Gets Free Candy

I always have a sign on my Midtown door that says, "No costume, no candy!" I don't care how old trick-or-treaters are. If they make the effort to dress up, I give them something for their efforts. Heck, at least wear a mask!

Re: “Five Starting Fives: Who should be starting for the Grizzlies?

@Iggy: That's a tough question. I'm not sure the Grizzlies have as big of a hole this year as they did last year, but it's definitely not optimal. The Clippers seem to have gotten slightly worse at SF, although last year's model of Jared Dudley was basically a corpse in a red basketball uniform.

Re: “The Sno Cream Castle

What an awesome story and comments! They made me cry. I'm Edith's grandson and grew up covered in Sno Cream stickiness. I live in San Francisco now where there's an explosion of gourmet fatty soft serve ice cream. I think about her often and what she'd think of ice cream flavored with corn flakes and bourbon. My grandmother was an amazing person. Thank you so much for a trip down memory lane lined with my grandma's magic elixir!

It's parody, so it's not just poor writing.

Re: “Local Law Enforcement Agencies are Tennessee’s Biggest Spenders of Seized Assets

I have a problem with seizing assets if the person who loses the property/money isn't charged with a crime.

Who team has a bigger hole at SF: the Grizzlies or the Clippers?

Re: “New Juvenile Court Judge Looks for “Balance”

This guy makes me sick. “save the child’s life while protecting you.”??. Those "Children" beat a kid unconscious for fun and laughed about it. I hope your kids aren't the next victims when they want to have more "fun". We need to get him out of office!

Re: “"Memphis Rocks" Book Signing Friday

I would love to read this! Thank you! You are adding another piece of Memphis' music history with this new book. I recently heard a really good blues-rock band from Texas who were coming through here. They said they had been to so many places, they no longer knew which town they were in, but they said they always knew when they were in Memphis because it is special.

Re: “Local Man Concerned About Who Gets Free Candy

This was done on "Dear Pru" about 5 days ago (see link below). Halloween in Central Gardens is something to behold. My family won't be ANY place else. We welcome all the kids...no matter where they actually live. There are some visitors that we jokingly call "THe Big Scaries"...but they are actually few and far between and sometimes seem to enjoy the candy the most. We go inside when either 1-we are out of candy or 2-it is 8 PM. We love, love, LOVE being part of Central Gardens Halloween! http://slate.me/1sTsR7k

Re: “Local Man Concerned About Who Gets Free Candy

This is parody. Not very funny, but labeled as parody, nonetheless. The kind folks in Central Gardens have never turned anyone away and they give out AWESOME candy to anyone who comes knocking. My kids love it. If you've never experienced a Central Gardens Halloween, I suggest you find a friend with a home in the neighborhood, sit on their porch and enjoy the fun with some nicely spiced apple cider. Bring on Halloween!

Re: “Local Man Concerned About Who Gets Free Candy

But for the most part, I'm pretty lucky. I live in a neighborhood where I feel safe offering critiques of others' costume choices. If I don't like a kid's costume, instead of candy I give them a 20% off coupon to Spirit Halloween, tell them to try harder next year.
