The Halloween Spirit

Neighbors in my Nextdoor community are complaining that the Halloween spirit seems to be dead. They’re lamenting that not many kids came to their door, if any at all.

I can’t imagine why.

“Hey kids, lets all go to random people’s houses and put whatever they give us in our mouths. And maybe it’d be great if everyone wore a mask, like people do in gas station robberies. In the dark.”

Few kids ever wander our neighborhood. I can’t say I’m upset by that. I don’t trust anyone out around my house anyway.

Now if we could just do something about fireworks on the 4th of July.

Justin has been around the Internet long enough to remember when people started saying “content is king”.

He has worked for some of Indiana’s largest companies, state government, taught college-level courses, and about 1.1M people see his work every year.

You’ll probably see him around Indianapolis on a bicycle.
