GUEST,#1 Thought for the Day April 14, 2001 (24) RE: Thought for the Day April 14, 2001 14 Apr 01


You can throw Margaret Murray's witchcraft books in the trash can, too. I never got a book by a folklorist I saw noted on a website. It was entitled 'Who Believed in Margaret Murray, and Why?'

coven was just an old word for a company or group and had nothing to do with witches. A succint criticism I saw recently was that Margaret Murray showed that people believed in witches, but failed to show there were any.

Is that what this weekend is all about? I worked from 4 to 10 PM Thursday (with, among others two folkies) setting up a church's Palestinian Dinner (Passover Seder is another church's name for it). [One of the minsters there also sings lots of folk songs, but mostly to youth groups]. It'll probably be left over lamb again tonight, but I'm not complaning.

Who shares the Hades bed when Persephone's away?
