Adults can join revelry on nights of ghosts and goblins at area dances


WAIT UNTIL you see my costume for my Halloween party," my friend said excitedly. "This year my theme is 'Women's Achievements in the '90s -- Fact or Fiction?'

"I'm going as Marcia Clark before her make-over," she announced. "I thought about Janet Reno, but frankly, with the presidential elections next year I'm concerned I wouldn't get more than one year's use from a Reno outfit."

I no longer do costumes. Not after the 1987 "Humpty Dumpty" episode. For several years after the party I repeatedly was accosted by strangers asking if I wanted any eggs. Trick or treat, Glen Burnie.
