D.C. was at the center of a great confluence of events this weekend. Halloween revelers mixed with rally attendees while marathon runners buzzed across town. The final buildup to Tuesday's election had the town talking. And suspicious packages discovered on board airplanes had the top brass concerned.

A quick recap to the weekend reading and viewing you may have missed:

Halloween costumes: Robin Givhan and Hank Stuever will pick their favorite costume in our costume contest. Go see the submitted photos now and pick your personal preference (mine is the tea kettle man above).

Election mania: With just a few hours left for the election countdown to begin, The Post asked readers what they think of the government. Hear their thoughts in this audio slideshow here and follow our 50 state guide for all the coverage.

Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear: Catch up on the snarky signs, the outlandish outfits and the comedy stylings of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert with our full coverage here. Vote on your favorite sign here.

Suspicious packages: Two package bombs hidden inside printer cartridges were discovered on board passenger flights. It is not clear who was targeted, but evidence links them to al-Qaeda. Officials fear more packages could be discovered.
