HAPPY HALLOWEEN: And remember what

HAPPY HALLOWEEN: And remember what Larry David said- just because it's Halloween, it doesn't give you the right to go to people's houses and bilk them out of candy.

AND SPEAKING OF 'CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM...': Watching the Wellstone funeral/rally reminded me of the 'Curb' episode two weeks ago when Larry's mother dies, and Larry subsequently uses the "my mother died" card to get everything he wants from everyone he knows, up to and including sex with his wife. Starting with that rally and continuing until election day, the Democrats (in Minnesota and elsewhere) are apparently playing the "Wellstone died" card in a similar way. It may even turn out to be the "otherwise the terrorists win" of 2002.

AND ANOTHER ANALOGY ABOUT ANOTHER LARRY DAVID SHOW...: Just as Cosmo Kramer got to "do nothing, fall ass-backwards into money, and have sex without dating," Walter Mondale since 1984 has gotten to "do nothing, make lots of money, and become a Senator without running."
