Halloween has come and gone... and left me with a conundrum.

Halloween is (normally) big in El Paso, thanks to El Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, only a few miles away. Busloads of children would cross into the US looking for goodies, and I would happily supply them. Two years ago no fewer than 200 children came to my door.

This year, thanks apparently to new restrictions on the border, I was only able to sweeten the hearts of a few dozen children. Now I am left with tons of treats -- and I'm on a diet.

Here is another alarmist article, having to do with the creation of "Homeland Security" checkpoints inside the United States. I was rather skeptical about it, but apparently it has been partially confirmed, via talk radio in Michigan. I'll post more details when I get them.
A friend sent this little page in my direction. I couldn't tell you how accurate the article is, but if there really are 600 internment camps, prepped to receive prisoners, throughout the United States, then I would be very concerned for the future.
