If only Palo Alto could keep the children in their own neighborhoods. Why do they always want to go elsewhere rather than stay within their own neighbors who have bought candy to give to their neighbors? So many older people wait for the doorbell to ring to hand out candy but few come.

Sad that it is now bigger, better, best rather than neighborly community.
