Interesting news and articles - October 26, 2014

I've been a little slack with the news updates lately...and I'm not sure I'm going to be doing them anymore.  I've been rather busy with other things lately, and haven't had as much time for reading, so I don't find as many things to post anymore.  Besides, I initially only intended for the news posts to help keep things interesting in between my already dwindling number of posts that I'd written, but I feel like these news posts are starting to dominate the blog which is not what I intended.

So I'm not necessarily putting the blog on a hiatus or anything...but I don't know when the next time I post something will be.  The blog will stay online though.

Before Salem, There Was the Not-So-Wicked Witch of the Hamptons --Not a recent article, but interesting.  I found it kind of funny that the Governor of the colony, an educated man, essentially didn't think the woman was smart enough to be doing the witchcraft she was accused of doing.  In other words, if an educated man like him couldn't do the stuff she was allegedly doing, then she must not be doing it either!

Sounds pretty cool, eh?
