Their At It Again

Last Monday, members of a New York group called the Satanic Temple joined Harvard students to hold a "black mass" at a Chinese restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The absurdity of the event belies the controversy that led up to it, as the ceremony - a quasi-religious parody of a Catholic Holy Mass - was originally scheduled to be sponsored by a Harvard University student organisation and held on campus. About 50 people, mostly dressed in black and some wearing face makeup, and a woman in lingerie  were present for the ceremony.  Welcome to America.

Lord of the Rings (sidebar)

Marquette University purchased the Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, and other Tolkien writings for a pittance in the 1950's.  Tolkien was a seriously devout Mackerel Snapper so maybe that was an influence.  Wonder if they still have the originals?

The Flowers by Robert Louis Stevenson

All the names I know from nurse:
Gardener's garters, Shepherd's purse,
Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock,
And the Lady Hollyhock.

Fairy places, fairy things,
Fairy woods where the wild bee wings,
Tiny trees for tiny dames--
These must all be fairy names!

Tiny woods below whose boughs
Shady fairies weave a house;
Tiny tree-tops, rose or thyme,
Where the braver fairies climb!

Fair are grown-up people's trees,
But the fairest woods are these;
Where, if I were not so tall,
I should live for good and all.
