Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween I don't think I like the idea of a World Series game on Halloween night. Kids have to choose between the game and trick-or-treating. And adults keep getting interrupted when the doorbell rings.

In the Halloween "spirit" - a New York ghost story.

The Dakota is an apartment complex in uptown Manhattan. It's a spooky-looking building; Rosemary's Baby was filmed there. But it's best known for being the building where John Lennon was gunned down by Mark David Chapman.

And it's Lennon's ghost that is seen at the Dakota. In particular, people report that they see him come out of the building and walk to the Imagine mosaic at the Strawberry Fields memorial, directly across the street in Central Park.

A Central Park hot dog vendor reported that he saw Lennon cross the street, singing "Give Peace a Chance." The ghost stopped at the Imagine mosaic, then vanished into thin air.

Yeah, yeah, everybody's got "reasons."

Hey, I'm from Hawaii, where there is no home team for any major sport. I'm allowed to root for whoever I want!
