I have been a Masquerader ever since I was a boy dressing up for Trick or Treating. (I once had a wonderful Batman costume made of black satin which my grandmother Turner commissioned a local seamstress to create for me.) I have attended various masquerade balls and the like, some for our annual Houdini sťance/Halloween party at the Center for Inquiry (CFI). In the accompanying photograph I am at such a costume party-as part of our CSIcon New Orleans 2011 conference-at Tipitina's French Quarter bar.
