Do Not Fear Terrorism; Halloween is Here at Your Local Retailer
This is unfortunate because I was reserving this month to be scared about International Terrorism.
On the news we learn that we should fear international terrorism and the sneaky bad guys.
But when I went into a local retailer I noticed Halloween stuff was everywhere; that was a little scary considering it is quite a ways off until Halloween.
Each year it appears our retailers start earlier and earlier to get a jump on the competition to sell us the latest holiday goods.
What are you going to be for Halloween this year?Plastic pumpkins are for sale; buy two get one free; says the ad.
As a consumer I feel threatened by these early Halloween sales.
But whatever you do; do not buy a Osama bin Laden ghost outfit for your kids for Halloween.
The French newspaper says that Osama bin Laden has died and he may come back as a ghost for Halloween.
We should not fear terrorism, as we enter the Halloween season.
Halloween reminds us that the only thing we have to fear, is fear its self.
Now I wonder when the Christmas and Thanksgiving holiday decorations will go up in the local retailers and the shelves will be stocked with more holiday gear.
Now that's a scary thought.
Consider this in 2006.
