Maybe try picking a different time-honored tradition that doesn't carry the risk of having to register as a sex offender.
In many states, registered sex offenders are forced to stay indoors from sundown on and can't answer the door, measures that activists say are over-the-top and don't make kids safer.
The database is too big to be helpful. The new recommendation is that only violent offenders be compelled to register for life. Legislators meanwhile are afraid of appearing soft, and don't want to "intellectualize" the issue.
