Gooooood Mooooooorning, Crooks and Liars! It's Halloween week, so we are sure to find something to frighten us.

Rogues and Scholars looks at Lou Reed, who passed away at age 71 on Sunday. We send our condolences to Laurie Anderson.

Liberal Values looks at the Republican Brand, such as it is.

Herlander Walking has something to say to everyone waiving the Confederate Flag, and I think she speaks for most of us.

Halloween Week Bonus Track: Andrew Dalios finds the best Halloween costume, maybe ever.

Please support this blog and all it does. Thanks.
