Need to blow off a little steam before Election Day? Can Tuesday not come soon enough? You’re not alone, but you are in luck: Halloween arrives at the perfect time this year.
THE SAINT is fully outfitted in Dia de Los Muertos décor, and HAVANA has never looked spookier. Tomorrow night — Halloween night — in a stunt that we haven’t pulled off in nearly two years, DJs N8, SOUL and CURTIS (a ghoulish trifecta) will be killing it at the World’s Greatest Bar.
By the way, Halloween is also St. Quentin’s Day. Seriously.
So be sure to stop by for your candy!
Be safe — and don’t forget to VOTE!!!

Apparel maker accuses world's largest retailer of selling shoes too close to patented Nike Shox.
"Nike does not sell its own product in Wal-Mart and has long argued that its brand would be devalued if sold in discount chains."
my favorite part of mr. buffett's op-ed (only his fourth in 35 years!):
"Today people who hold cash equivalents feel comfortable. They shouldn’t. They have opted for a terrible long-term asset, one that pays virtually nothing and is certain to depreciate in value. Indeed, the policies that government will follow in its efforts to alleviate the current crisis will probably prove inflationary and therefore accelerate declines in the real value of cash accounts.
Equities will almost certainly outperform cash over the next decade, probably by a substantial degree. Those investors who cling now to cash are betting they can efficiently time their move away from it later. In waiting for the comfort of good news, they are ignoring Wayne Gretzky’s advice: “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not to where it has been."

CNN.com: Obama campaign rejects Palin 'terrorist' gibe
With Obama rising in polls while the country struggles in the grip of a financial crisis, Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign decided to shift attention away from the troubled economy and on to issues of his opponent's character, judgment and personal associations, the Washington Post reported.
"We're going to get a little tougher," a senior Republican operative said, requesting anonymity because he wasn't authorized to discuss strategy. "We've got to question this guy's associations. Very soon. There's no question that we have to change the subject here."
"What's clear is that John McCain and Sarah Palin would rather spend their time tearing down Barack Obama than laying out a plan to build up our economy," Sevugan said.
