JAZZ PICKLE JAR: For dessert today, I bring you this Halloween cartoon from 1999. When I wrote this gag I had only visited California, but now that I live here I can report that this kind of general attitude isn’t prevalent, but is certainly more common than it is anywhere else I’ve lived or visited. There is an openness and civility in California that most places don’t share in large quantities and it makes it a more relaxed and peaceful place to live. Of course, I moved here after 10 years in New York, which is pretty much the opposite in every way. I still find the absurdity of this cartoon funny, however.
