Mock Graveyards are poor taste this Halloween.

I know this is Halloween and people like to decorate their front yards, but this year I think it is inappropriate to have mock graveyards in Palo Alto. In light of the events of this week, death is no longer funny and reminders with gravestones and RIPs are painful reminders of the reality of death. Pumpkins, ghosts, witches and other traditional decorations and costumes are fine, but please be careful. Parents check what your children are planning for costumes as I have heard rumors of distasteful suggestions this year.
I respectfully ask you to remove any gravestones from your front yards. Thank you.
