Reply To: Vehicles, not predators, pose greatest threat to little monsters at Halloween



While I agree with the overall theme of this short article, the headline is terribly misleading; it implies that everyone on the registry is a predator when in fact most are not. It’s the same sort of reader baiting that the traditional media employ to lure people into their stories. Having worked in the media for more than four decades, I was often taken to task for headlines I did not write and bore only a tangential relationship to the actual facts of the story. But, as headline writers are fond of saying: Don’t let the facts stand in the way of a good headline.
