I was wrong about the absence of giant inflated figures this year. Apparently everyone just waited a couple of weeks to put them up. (Well, two weeks is better than all month.)
And the people across the street have put up two hideous giant figures. Their lights shine in my bedroom window at night.
I'd like to sneak over there and stab them repeatedly. But it's the home of the chief of police.
Probably not a good idea.
