ukuni.jpg just add candy...exactly how J-Lo would've wanted it As I sit here today scrambling to piece together a suitable 'at-the-buzzer' Halloween costume, my mind can't help but drift back to the autumn days of my youth. Free from the muddle of topical humor and lofty artistic expectation, this costume thing used to be so much easier, didn't it? Especially for myself, as I pretty much knew by September what I'd be moonlighting as come October 31st.

Franklin and Rawlings, for all their repute, couldn't quite copy the feel of a Hutch, with their little shoulder pads and punter's helmet. It was indeed the perfect costume for any boy, or girl with a father who really wanted a boy, and as long as the York Peppermint Patties and Three Musketeers were kept to a minimum, you were assured a truly Happy Halloween.
