Masked men rob Halloween store.

From the new poorly-designed
They wore the right costumes.

Halloween Adventure, at 1675 Sunrise Hwy. in Bay Shore, LI was robbed at gunpoint by two masked men late Thursday.

Police said they robbed the business and three employees.

Karaoke blamed for losing Afghanistan war.

If the Taliban learns "Sweet Caroline," we're done for. From the Washington Post:
KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan (Reuters) - The United States is cutting back on luxuries and distractions such as salsa and karaoke nights to free up space for troops fighting an increasingly violent eight-year war in Afghanistan.

Kandahar airfield is the main air transport hub for the U.S.-led NATO mission in Afghanistan and is so cramped its sewage pool is almost overflowing. But the plan to cut recreational facilities is causing a bigger stink.

"I think it's pretty disheartening for all the soldiers, taking away what little morale they have here," said U.S. military driver Private First Class John Armstrong as he sipped gourmet coffee, one of several comforts that may be cut.
