A Cartel Kind Of Halloween
Lady Raven hit it out of the park with this one!
Remember Halloween costumes like the Lone Ranger and Tonto and Elvis, or pirates and skeletons, and the ghostly white sheet with two holes for eyes, or black cats and ballerinas and fairy’s? Today one’s imagination and money are all that limit costumes. In searching trends for kids, eBay listed for the month of September the ten top sellers as: Mario and Luigi, Star Wars, Batman, Frozen, Witch, Minion, Spider-Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Minnie and Mickey Mouse, and Power Rangers. Mostly innoxious enough heroes.
Not so harmless, to me, are masks being sold in Mexico and the United States that “resembles the man who for years trafficked cocaine to the United States, shipped methamphetamines to Canada and distributed ecstasy to as far off as Europe.” The “world’s most powerful drug trafficker” according to the U.S. Treasury. The drug lord: Joaquín Guzmán, known as “El Chapo.”
Not trending by any definition…
