Happy Friday, Spursland! And Happy Halloween. If you are a parent, happy overdosing children night. And if you are a teenager "going out" tonight, try not to do any permanent damage or commit any felonies. Should you not know if one of your planned "visits to a friend's house" is a felony, I suggest you look up the statues in your state and municipality. And remember kids of all ages, have fun, be safe, and remember you are practicing paganism.
And now the "news"
