    Tonight, Halloween.

    OK. I'm old. Been around awhile. When I was a kid we'd rake the leaves into the street, then light them up. Standard practice, and that in a primary city in New England. So, it's Halloween. It's fall. Tonight was a warm, but crisp night. Nice night to be outside with a jacket on. I fired up...
