  • What would happen if no one followed the rules on Halloween?

    There is a perfect costume for this Halloween, and it has nothing to do with politics, movies or the sprite-of-the-moment spiffery.

    This Sunday, simply slip into a pair of striped pajamas – broad, horizontal, black-and-white stripes, preferably – and go ring a doorbell for trick or treat.

    You not only will be dressing the part of a Scofflaw, but you will be playing it, too.
