    I’ve always suppressed my concern for the sad little…guy in the adverts. Glad to know he’s looking on the bright side now. BTW…If I’m ever accused of being a witch, punishable by burning, drowning, or the ever popular “pressing”, you can best believe that I will be setting new records in the mile!

    I always want to tell him to find a damn comb. Your witch comment made me laugh. A few weeks ago I spent the day in Salem, Massachusetts, America’s only witch-based economy. It’s like the worst of Las Vegas meets the worst of Wal-Mart. The hilarious thing is the city’s two most significant art-related landmarks are the Peabody Essex Museum (actually, one of the finest in New England) and the life-sized bronze (not making this up–Google Image it!) of Elizabeth Montgomery in character as Samantha Stevens, riding a broom.
