Instapundit believes this is a parody and I certainly hope so. I am 58 and last went trick or treating in 1969. My mother had a great ghost costume sewn up for me, and my friends and I tromped all over town, having a whale of a good time. In retrospect I look upon it as my fond farewell to my childhood.
I pity people much younger than I am. I am able to recall living in a world before leftists managed to worm their way into positions of power in our culture, politicize everything and make it a constant fight to simply lead a normal life, especially for kids who leftists perpetually target. Napoleon’s foreign minister Talleyrand, a renegade bishop, who once said in response to a question about what did he do during the French Revolution stated simply that he had survived it, was quite a rogue, but often said wise, even profound, things. He once opined that people who were born after the French Revolution would never know just how sweet life could be. I feel the same for anyone born thirty years ago or less.
