Halloween and walking

Last year it occurred to me that Halloween was America's celebration of the joys of walking. I had a similar warm feeling as I walked with dozens of others around my neighborhood this year.

Then, I read about a nine-year-old and his mother killed as he trick-or-treated in Westfield Friday night. That's the part of being a pedestrian in this country that should not be celebrated.

Where could the driver have been going so urgently on Halloween that she didn't take more care looking out for little kids?
