We're live blogging Franklin's Trick or Treat hours from 4-7 pm.

“Mr. Fischer, I am sure you’re a fine American. Being the fine American you are, I know you want to help other Americans. You are on talk radio. You are on television. You write your own blog. You have a steady job with benefits. The fact is, you are doing well and need to spread your good fortune around. Next Halloween, no candy, please. I will be back to accept your large cash donation that I may spread as I see fit. Because, you see Mr. Fischer, if there’s something I’m really good at, it’s spreading it around.”

First ACORN costume I’ve ever seen.
