Silly String[edit]

You may be inclined to argue about whether "12:00 am on October 31" is really Halloween at all, and I assume that is why you edited this article (inserting "(sic)" after that date and time). However, read the paragraph again. What is stated there is the exact date and time as they appear in the Los Angeles ordinance. We needn't notate sic ("intentionally stated thus") when we are citing facts, supported by reliable sources, here on Wikipedia, since that should be the intention of all of us even if we might like the facts to be different. The "36 hour" reference adds value by clarifying the time period and its duration. Hence: reverted. — Dwpaul (talk) 20:58, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

What makes you think it's 36 hours? That's but one interpretation of what the sign says. I merely trimmed the text of the article to remove the inference. Adding "(sic)" was editorializing, sure, but that's a separate issue. I'll redo the edit, without the "(sic)" this time. -Phil
This is what makes me think: "'Halloween' shall mean the 36-hour period from 12:00 a.m. on October 31st of each year, through 12:00 p.m. on November 1st of each year." LA Municipal Code Sec. 56.02. SILLY STRING -- HOLLYWOOD DIVISION DURING HALLOWEEN. (emph added). Reverting again. — Dwpaul (talk) 23:35, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
