Watch out for kids coming to your house asking for candy they could be casing your house for when they grow up.
Very astute observation! I set up a pair of loudspeakers blasting Paul Anka, and I make sure all the tactical spotlights are set at full burn. (I'm told you can see the place from orbit.) The thing is, the children are often a distraction while Al Qaeda operatives sneak up from the back, so it's important to make sure you've got an eye out for tangos there as well. I cover my six by conducting bihourly perimeter searches in full ninja gear with an AR-15. The local HOA cries foul, but I won't be taken unawares.

Errrrm...really, it's Halloween. I give out candy to a few kids, and my dog gets to sniff new people. My biggest concern is people driving too fast down the road when there are children out.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
