Really? 220 Kids for Halloween? Really?

Here's a photo from our neighborhood from last night's Halloween.  My wife keeps track of kids every year, and we shattered the candy record by serving over 220 pieces to the children of Green Bay and surrounding locales. 

Indeed, parents drove their kids to our neighborhood - in golf carts, cars, and an endless array of minivans - to go door to door in our area.  And it was just our area as well.  I had to make an emergency trip to the grocery store, and other neighborhoods had about two kids walking around.  We had episodes this evening with over a dozen kids waiting at our door for candy.  And in looking in the kids' bags, I found the reason why we were so popular.  It seems a couple of our neighbors were giving out full size candy bars. 

I've never seen anything like it. 

I take it back.  One Halloween when I was little, a buddy's mom drove us over to Minneapolis porn kingpin Ferris Alexander's house, where we were summarily ushered in, and around a huge round table helped ourselves to massive quantities of full-size candy bars. 

Does this mean I live in an area with a bunch of porn purveyors?  Perhaps not.  But they obviously don't have enough to do with their money. 

The whole scene was one of greedy and ostentatious behavior.
