For Halloween, the best response ever from a D.C. mom after some jerk stole her kid's pumpkin. With costume photos from the good old, hand-made, truly creepy days, and a final lugubrious word from Lou Reed.
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
