Tricks, few treats on Halloween
I gaze with boredom out of the window of the Red Line train at around 5 pm on Oct. 31, at Thorndale.
Quickly, my eyeballs bulge to attention at the sight of a group of young kids and their Halloween "pranks" around Swift School.
About 20 kids are flinging eggs at each other and otherwise pummeling and smacking. Good times are had by all. Except if you happen to be a commuter or neighbor walking to or from the Thorndale station.
And of course, all of this happens directly under the watchful gaze of the blue-flashing police camera at Thorndale and Winthrop.
