Must be a ghost

Someone is nicking Hallowe'en ornaments from one woman's garden in Roslindale, Massachussets.

Dating back to Oct. 6, a group of unidentified bandits have hit the Short's home three times, taking carloads of Halloween props and decorations worth an estimated $200. Without a clue as to who the thieves might be, or why they have targeted her house, Short is finding this year's trick-or-treating season downright depressing.

Enough is enough already, said Short, a self-described Halloween and Christmas decoration nut. I don't understand why we're the only ones having this problem. We went to our neighbors and they haven't heard a thing.

It's almost like they know when we go to bed. It's kind of creepy.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
