Halloween: The New Yorker

I haven’t decided yet if this is just a great satirical illustration or a sad and exposing view of what we have become.

This Saturday we will be taking the kid out for a trick-or-treating excursion and my hope is that I can refrain from being exactly what the illustration infers – worried more about my email rather than enjoying the single Halloween he gets to spend as a two-year old.

Parental gut punch?
