Sometimes, it’s the oddest of things that provide some sobering perspective.
When master carver Hugh McMahon put Donald Trump’s face on a pumpkin last year, it seemed possible, though unlikely, that the former reality star would actually become the Republican Party’s presidential nominee.

This Halloween season is terrifying, indeed.
