i need a chronicle
So... you could dress your kid for Halloween as 1) a singer who got caught with a pound and a half of weed (for personal use); 2) a murdered Tejano singer; 3) a cigar-smoking humorist who wants to fund public education off of casino revenue; 4) St. Vince of the Forty Acres; 5) a rock singer who died of a drug od; or 6) the First Lady.
Only one of those costumes is even remotely appropriate for a child. Not to mention that no children I know would ever consider more than one of those costumes as a realistic possibility. And the Statesman wonders why people don't take the paper seriously.
