Trick or treating in Washington, D. C.

Thriller Halloween parade

Nevada is celebrating its 146th year of belonging to the Union today as we prepare for Tuesday’s election.  Tuesday Nevadans will choose a governor, lieutenant governor and numerous other officials to govern us for the period between now and the next election – we will also choose a representative to the national congress in the prestigious and upper house of government – the Senate.  Our current Senator is the most powerful person in that house, but he might be replaced by the least powerful and most junior member, who would be joining the Senate as a first term freshmen.  But before we face the ballot box and its daunting challenges, we are all going to dress up, go around to each others houses and beg for candy and treats under the threat of tricks if you pleas go unanswered.  Wait, isn’t that what they do in Congress?
