Vampires

Today is Halloween; tomorrow is Samhain.  There is a full moon.  Today is the day that the dead have access to the living before the Celtic winter in the Northern climates settles in.  I hope that this is true for fictional characters as well.  We could use a little bit of Professor Abraham Van Helsing over the next few days.

Now that most of the electorate knows who the vampire is, and where he sleeps, they can light the torches, sharpen their pens and pencils, and can drive a ballot into his heart.  The 78 days that he will be bound in that coffin with a stake will be needed to perform the rituals to make sure he never rises again.

Unfortunately, with his destruction, not all he fed off of will be cured of his vile disease.  We are going to need to call up the Abraham Van Helsing in us all for a long time.

John Smith, IIMXIII is the avatar of an award winning poet, artist, etc. who still lives in the Palouse country of the Pacific NW. He has not received much notice with his prose . . . but as his avatar, I hope that he keeps plugging along.
