In New Orleans and we'll also talk about whether or not you've ever experienced. A ghost -- spirit. And the presence of somebody who is. Part of another world. Or have you heard a credible story that you that you honestly believe I've I've heard a few stores I believe I've I've had one experience it was a it was a brief experience once I think some people are more susceptible to -- and others. I had one brief experience and I'll talk about that to torment but also we'll talk about your stories as well and we'll be live on the air tomorrow night Halloween night will be talking about today activities. Which means that have -- Halloween trick or treating doesn't start until midnight tomorrow night a Southern California high school is banning working. And all dances claiming that it is sexually suggestive. This is it Orange County California which is a very conservative even -- -- on the beach it's a very conservative area of Southern California. A so now to working joins freaking and grinding as prohibited dances at all Orange County schools. Those who break the rule will be ineligible to go to future dances. For the remainder of the school year and their parents will be notified that they were part to working. At school. After those of you who don't know working as what to Miley Cyrus made famous during a recent MTV video music awards. I guess it's best described as a rapid. Frosting of the hip pelvic area. In very rapid motion. And sometimes it's done up against. Another person. Here's here's what I find interest. The baby boomer generation is now. The establishment. The baby boomer generation to generation. They did a dance called the ball. The bump. Was a dance where you bumped. The body of the person you were dancing with. You would bump but you would bump hips you would -- whenever you'd bumped down low you'd. You'd bump all over the place and I remember doing an attorney that when I was a teenager there was nothing sexier. They -- -- the ball with somebody wearing hot pants. So what I find interesting is that here's a generation that's now making the rules. That is concerned about young people working. When they did the ball. And they think they turned out okay. And this is yet another reason why I describe myself as a hostile witness. To the baby boomer generation. We're talking about a Halloween -- tonight and it is but it basically been a myth that there are people out there putting. Poisoned candy 22 poisoned kids and I guess that that theory yet heard that idea is. Something that just goes along with that the mystery of Halloween it.

We can't change indeed chitchat but it.

Right but some people duties call to -- to I understand I can't call the company you but that doesn't make Halloween innately evil because they use Halloween for the -- -- the way. Well it was it ever really it was it was taken I don't know how in riot it would pay an evil and went towards the couple. That's what to but it everybody heard of the double on Halloween that's not necessarily true. Kind of wondered does some -- did that because.

I've never heads up close knit. Or object model until it off. And let let it went -- -- I want an object. I think it's it's interesting and -- -- I believe you and I do think people get those feelings they get that sense there -- their clairvoyant to some degree. Maybe not everybody all the time some people more than others and and maybe just occasionally happens but it's interesting that you've had that feeling and that feeling was absolutely accurate it was the father. If one has been and out. It -- -- you have that discussion about this you know. But I out very well and had contact with the case it it would just open door. It would but it didn't do it very well -- are we leave it there. But now -- that's plenty -- that it I've I've. -- you are sharing that story would -- thanks so there is this time this this idea that there are drug dealers out there. Who art distributing a blue star tattoo. And you may have heard about this there are letters in fliers that go out claiming that they are drug dealers targeting schoolchildren. With a blue star -- on tattoos that I believe is about the size of a pencil racer. It's wrapped in -- The blue store tattoo is the least. With LSD. And when you brought the tattoo on your body. LSD gets into the body of these little children. It's a hoax. It's not true. And yet there are people who Warren -- there are groups it did warn people about the -- starts at two. Around Halloween another Halloween -- Both the media and the audience. Are probably to blame for the perpetuation of the poisoned Halloween candy -- But I think it should be acknowledged that the media instinctively. Has more interest in the story that causes fear in the minds of Americans then in a story that defuse this year. If it was learned that this was just a myth after all these years that there really are no cases -- and -- -- for this. Over the years from now a lot of different sources said that it did my own research and it all seems to point back to this 1974 incidents. In Waco Texas where a father. I gave. Cyanide candy to his eight year old son his son died. It was discovered that he was trying to get the money from a large insurance policy. He was convicted of murdering his son and -- acute of lethal injection in 1984 that seems to be the source. -- what became a widespread belief that there were evil people working in neighborhoods all across this country. Or putting poison and candy and razor blades in apples when that really didn't happen. It over the years that the stories that dealt with warning people about this poison and dangerous objects and in Halloween candy and Halloween treats. This was high profile stuff in the news. And it was time to set the record straight on that for those who still might have believed it but remember that. That the news media will always treat a story that cautious fear. With a lot more attention than any story that -- his fear. And look obviously -- we love to believe a good ghost story. And society loved embracing this new feared that really fit the ambiance of Halloween night. People around here and there trying to poison our children. Sex offenders around here and they're using this night when little kids are walking around they're using this night to find new pre. When there's no research that indicate there's any increase. In. Strangers. Sexually attacking kids on Halloween. And and as you know the great majority of kids who are sexually abused are abused by people they knew. And and I think over 40% of the cases it's actually relatives. So you know. May be may be the thought that there really is something to fear. In in the midst of the innocence of trick or treating on Halloween maybe that gave adults. A reason to be afraid. And being afraid seems to be part of the human experience. Why else would be so willing to go to a movie.

He can't that's it can't do that that's parents can't be telling their kids what to do. I mean this this particular kind of world do we listen. Doctors are suggesting that parents tell their children what to do. -- parents simply don't understand you know kids get these phones they get the tablet say that they get -- they should be able to do whatever they want. And parents just shouldn't be going around trying to tell her kids. What to do. Actually I think the biggest question is -- what's more important keeping your kid quiet and entertained actually interacting with your child. Really bothers me to see. Some people out to dinner. And the adults are talking and the kids are not interacting at all because they're focused on their phones or tablets or whatever electronic device they have their hands. We can't lose our ability to communicate so which is more important think about it keeping -- -- quite an entertainer actually talking to your kids. All right so where she just celebrate Halloween and Wallace will come back with that as we wrap up -- -- -- -- -- -- WL. There are still people who in current times believe that Halloween is an evil in celebration. Last year a group of Catholic bishops in Poland we talked about this on the show. They were urging the Catholics. Not to observe Halloween. One bishop sent a letter to parishioners saying that using the fun of Halloween is a guys. The day can be destroying the spiritual life. He wrote that the tricks. Hide diabolical attitudes. By encouraging the willingness to harm others. Another bishop in Poland wrote that the message of Halloween defies the teachings of the Catholic Church by promoting the cult. And magic. Tomorrow is Halloween night. There's a North Dakota woman who is planning to give out letters to children. That she thinks are overweight. The children will be told to give the sealed letter to their parents. It will be a letter critical of their parents for allowing. Their children who she believes are overweight. To go trick or treating for Halloween candy. -- -- How cruel and ridiculous is that. I would hope that none of these kids first of all. This is going too far the woman should not use this occasion to a deal to deal with the obesity problem with kids in America. -- is absurd. I would hope the -- that the kids would open up the letter and and see that that's not her point two is that her place to put them in that in that position. And I think it's -- I think it really is -- a -- and who issued a judge Julius is really overweight. So when it comes to Halloween in New Orleans you know there's there's always been this mystique about New Orleans because of our history. There's that the talk of food to win the French Quarter weren't the most haunted places in America. To celebrate Halloween in New Orleans just go to the French Quarter. Bergen street Frenchman street. On the the lower part of Decatur street a close to a esplanade -- are gonna be great places to celebrate Halloween tomorrow. Molly's that the market is wearing a Halloween parade starts tomorrow night a peoples are gathering around dusk. And the -- -- -- begins. After the sun goes down. It's free it's open to the public -- -- a few little floats in and but for the most part it's just it's just people in constant. Having a good time Molly's that the market is on -- step toward the the French market area. Decatur street that should be a fun time. And that just kind of goes to the corner I don't know if it if it has a specific. Path that it takes the quarterly just goes to the course he might run into that. -- tomorrow night. I'll be working till midnight going off the admitted I'd tell you -- trick or treating then here's a final update on tonight's having a dual party general opinion poll.
