The Scariest Halloween Ever

  It's Halloween, so I thought I'd assemble some really scary things for you to think about today (and leading up to election day on Tuesday). 1.

As one who's lived through a few major hurricanes, obviously my thoughts and what passes for prayers in my world are with the millions of people in the path of the storm. That crazy image comes courtesy of my favorite weather source: Wunderground.com.  Dr. Jeff Masters has been a frequent guest on my show, but circumstances have him a bit too busy to come on today.  I will be checking his blog throughout today as I do both my show and Randi Rhodes' this afternoon.
