New York City does Halloween well (Part I)...

The famous Trinity Church in the financial district had put these pumpkins on their grave site. Famous people buried here are Alexander Hamilton (on your $20 bill) and Robert Fulton, who designed the "first commercial steamboat (there's a street named after him)."

Anyway, this got me thinking... of combining Knott's Scary Farm with cemetaries. What if the Arlington National Cemetary had a haunted tour? I would be the first to admit my fear, but I would still participate for the experience.

Here's that cheesy laugh in text:
BWaHa-HA-Ha-hA

I stand corrected with the Alexander Hamilton fact. My friend, Ben Wilkes, emailed me the corrected information: "Hamilton was never President. Delegate to the Constitutional Convention, Secretary of the Treasury (I knew those). Wikipedia remind us he was lead author of the Federalist Papers, too.

Thanks, Ben.
