For many kids this Halloween starts first thing in the morning. WNYC stopped by a couple of elementary schools to see what's in this season.

Worried about the dad that called Brian Lehrer this afternoon and said his son was going out for Halloween as "a terrorist" but really as Timothy McVeigh. Dad was going to "let the conversation begin". What's up with that? Why would you use your kid to start a conversation about homegrown terrorism? Or glorify in any way a man who murdered innocent people, mostly children. Very disturbing.
