According to this story on CNN.com today , a group in London is 'petitioning the British government for a posthumous pardon for the hundreds of people executed for witchcraft between the 16th and 18th centuries.' I dunno - seems like too little too late to me, and the whole angle of sending the petition around on Halloween strikes me as pretty hokey considering that over 400 real-live people were executed in England for alleged witchcraft before The Witchcraft Act of 1735 put an end to Britain's witch trials.
I will be cobbling my costume together tonight with McGruber like dexterity in hopes to get out the door in time to take the kids trick-or-treating and then go see the Heloise and the Savoir Faire and Bryan Scary show in Brooklyn. I'm going as Tippi Hedren from The Birds, and I'm torn whether to go as the before or after Tippy. The after (with bandages) is more dramatic, but the birds were finished pecking by the time she got that bandage on, so I just don't know...
