Halloween, America's Carnaval

Returning from the Greenwich Village Halloween scene, I doubt that costumes will remain the domain of kids.

Sure there were little pirates, fairies, Spidermen and Elmos trick-or-treating at generous shops and liquor stores, but they were outnumbered by the throngs of Paris Hiltons, sexy angels, Louis IV courtiers, and taller pirates. Through the evening, the epicenter moved from 6th avenue to Washington Square. Lots of laughing students and groups of tottering girls--expect bands, sponsors and pregnancies to follow.

While we talk about KGOY "Kids Getting Older Younger," I propose a parallel trend: ASYLUM "Adults Staying Younger Longer Until Married." Bring on the adult-sized costumes, welcome to Carnaval.

Thanks, Izzy, You're one of the best pirates going!
I hope that your new life in LA is just exciting enough and not a bit more.
