Five kinds of candy for five kinds of grownups this Halloween.
1 Bazooka Joe gum: For soldiers in JBLM’s 94th Field Artillery Regiment. Welcome home from the Middle East!
2 $100,000 Bars: For the Washington Legislature. Each one will cover your daily fine for violating state Supreme Court orders.
3 Laffy Taffy: For Tacoma officials pushing to go “all in” on the Click Cable system. You must be joking with your plan for massive utility subsidies to make Click competitive. (See also: Snickers.)
4 Now and Later: For Pierce County election officials. Can you please make up your minds and tell us when we should mail our ballots?
Bonus “six spot” for online readers:
6 Pop Rocks and Red Hots: For safety engineers working on PSE’s proposed Port of Tacoma liquid-natural gas plant. (See also: Atomic Fireballs.)
