Here's a bijou little story it's about the witches of Salem (USA), well psychics to be more precise who are up in arms because apparently it's far to easy for interlopers to muscle in on "their turf". According to some resident
I visited Salem many years ago whilst touring New England, it's a quaint little place and we did the various tours and re-enactments of the witch trials that occurred there 300 years ago. I find it astonishing that anyone would think that the story does anything but illustrate what happens when superstition egged on by religious clap-trap is allowed to escalate out of control. The fact that people still think the place is bewitched and seek out spiritual vapour-ware there is plain bonkers to me, but then again on reflection I guess it's no different than what millions of people seek in mosques and churches up and down the land on Fridays and Sundays all over the world.
Apparently things have turned nasty in Salem though recently, with dead animals being deposited outside certain premises, how awful!, it's strange though, you'd have thought they should have seen it coming?
