Tonight is the 29th Annual National Night Out

Why is this guy wearing a stocking cap in August anyway?
Here's a good idea, despite the rather weird-looking creature in the National Night Out website: National Night Out is a night for the good people of the community to reclaim their streets. It is celebrated across the United States tonight (except in Texas, where they really do think they're a whole other country; the Texas NNO is October 2).

From the NNO website:
NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is designed to:
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Just don't imbibe too much liquid courage at your local tavern before you take to taking back the streets this evening: Your neighbors may think they have to take the streets back from you!
