A shocking update to Washington Irving's "Headless Horseman!"
Headless People Terrorizing Cities And Towns Across The Nation!
Horsemen do not travel America's roads today, but the headless are more numerous than ever. Beware!
It is deep into October. The days are short and a long black gloom haunts the night. Eeriness creeps in from the clammy midnight air.

The headless sit on couches in countless homes watching TV! Whoa to you if you so enter these homes! That they would be confined to one deserted path where Ichabod Crane unhappily chanced upon. No! Today it is far more dire. The headless are everywhere! ... Continue reading about the headless ...
