Just Another Signpost on the Road to Disaster …

Newsweek's web presence, of course, is part of the always perceptive MSNBC professional journalism team. Maybe, to be charitable, they put in the third string during August.

Via my close personal friend Dave. Pun Salad looked at Salem's Wiccan woes a couple months back.
