Corner that almost banned Halloween

 

“If ever there was a holiday that deserves to be commercialized, it’s Halloween. We haven’t taken it away from kids. We’ve just expanded it so that the kid in adults can enjoy it, too.” — Cassandra Peterson

Could there ever be a street so cruel and uncaring that the residents there would intentionally set up only one halogen quartz street light to burn eerily on Halloween night and guard the entranceway to a street and sidewalk wracked with pot holes, cracks in the worn cement and other oddities that cause a pedestrian to go bump in the night? There is such a spot but the setup was temporary. Maintenance crews had abandoned this site for a while and the lack of adequate lighting would have made the area devoid of ghosts and goblins. —  gc
