Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

 


Welcome to the October 25, 2013 Post Game Show for Mojo Friday!

 

Not much about Obamacare in today's post game show ... it's time for Halloween!  And if you really really want to scare people this year, dress up as a Republican! Better yet, a Tea Bagger!

Halloween is definitely one of my favorite holidays. Partly because the fall here in New England is such a wonderful time of year, and partly, well, 'cause it's just fun.  It has long been my son's favorite holiday.  19 now, this goes back to when he was 3 or 4.  We've built haunted houses (in the garage and later under our rebuilt deck) ... decorated the yard quite extensively.

I remember when he was 7 or 8 or so, neighbors put on a quite extensive haunted house ... he dressed up as a killer clown, stood still and silent in a section of the yard where they had several killer clown props ... a pint sized killer clown standing with the others.  Then he'd leap forward, and scream .. usually when teen aged girls were walking by. They'd leap back, scream .. and then laugh!

I've also always loved the popular songs of Halloween, and ask you in our poll to tell us which one you liked the most!  Or, if I didn't identify it, tell us in a comment!

And now for the fun!

Today's Mojo Friday diary is Mojo Friday - Catastrophic Medicare And Obamacare - Edition
