"And Don't Even Get Me Started on the Validity of Bit-O-Honey!"
The following email was received in response to the final panel of yesterday's Sally Forth Halloween Sunday strip (as seen above).
What a disgusting commentary on our society and your cartoon. Your priorities are way off base as are your values. Our children are reading your comic and you have a moral responsibility to send the right message. Since when does a halloween treat given in good faith have a monetary value? I happened to love bubble gum and tootsie rolls as a child and was happy to have them as a treat. No, I have never given them as a treat on Halloween. Let's see-I gave Reese's Peanut Butter Cups this year. I got 14 for $2.50. That's obviously unacceptable by your standards or lack thereof.Our children should be happy with "any" treat given in good faith from a kind and generous neighbor. Clean up your act. Think about it please!
