Guru Tony says … Vatican thinktank wants global authority to rein in capitalism & make it people centred. Won’t work. Big Biz bigger than national economies. New smaller Biz is the answer.

Blogger Bard says:
Veil of death is thin
Ghosts come out for Halloween
Get in the spirit

Polly Ticks says …Greek debt halved and a trillion Euro bailout fund to be created. Is Eurozone saved? We’ll see. But super-capitalism will again have been saved by socialist economics.

Harry Fang says:
Ghosts are pathetic
Just go ‘Boo!’ and float about
What they lack is bite

    That’s a great haiku Anthony! The devil’s got it right (for a change…)!

    More sobering is the Age UK figure – 200 people a day dying is shocking. And yes, the powers that be have it wrong yet again. =/

    Ah, there is no costume ball or trick or treating here in my neighborhood sadly! :) To get in the spirit does seem fun, and I like the vampire’s view too :D A real fun take on Ghosts, Tony sir! Thank you for joining in!

    They say – not all ghosts are scary … but it might take some convincing, not sure if I would stop and ask before running!! Great job! :-)

    The Odd Thomas series by Dean Koonz makes a big deal about how ghosts cannot touch or harm people.

    Love the haiku’s — I’m still smiling

    “Ghosts are pathetic
    Just go ‘Boo!’ and float about
    What they lack is bite”

    We’re pathetic too
    Just go red and float about
    or go blue and pout

  22. Anthony North said on October 30, 2011

    Hi Zongrik, Yes, I’ve read quite a lot of Koontz. He’s good.
