Hi Readers! I’ve been behind in my emails and just found this cool idea. Comes from a gal named Catherine. Let’s do it!
Dear Free-Range Kids: How about a post-Halloween column where you challenge your readers to scan their local news and post ANY violent incidents that happened at Halloween?
I just scanned my local news and there was nothing (not surprisingly). It would be interesting to see if your readers can find even ONE.
As a journalist, if I was working for one of the big stations or papers that’s the story I’d be running today: “Stats show no trick-or-treat tragedies.”
So, readers: Pile on! Anything truly SCARY that happened in your neck of the woods? Or just a lot of candy, costumes and kids? — L.
