What a calm and peaceful Halloween this is, so serene, so pleasing to the senses. The weather is perfectly autumnal — chilled by night, warm by day, the maples adding to the neighborhood ambience by covering the sidewalks with fallen, golden leaves. It’s perfect.

Tranquility is relative. This year we got all the political turmoil out of the way early, with the government shutdown and debt ceiling crisis and related stupidity finished well in advance of trick or treating. Compare that to a year ago, when Halloween came days before the national election and the innocent trick or treaters had to navigate a sea of placards. You could hardly take your pillowcase to the next porch without getting your Batman cape caught on a yard sign. The shepherd parents with conflicting political views would hold an impromptu corner caucus while their beautiful children took offerings of candy from the neighborhood editorial page editor. It was almost like grassroots in training — smiling little people going door to door collecting sweets, watched by people in the shadows disguising strong opinions.
