The barricades are coming down.
The partiers are going home.
Halloween 2007 is over.
A man with a "Are you on the highway to hell" banner walks by.
Whew! Things are back to normal!
Our job was to encourage people to stay "home for Halloween" and they did just that. Now -- let's keep the energy pro-active and use the "home for Halloween" message to unite our community around a common goal: a safe "home for Halloween" in an appropriate venue.
Today is my birthday...I got exactly what I wanted: a peaceful home for Halloween in my home...the Castro.
