Victoria legalizes witches
The Australian province of Victoria decides the debate about the floating abilities of witches and ducks and wood was too confusing. From The Age:
It's clear skies for witches and other followers of the occult in Victoria with the repeal of an antiquated law making witchcraft, sorcery and fortune-telling criminal pursuits illegal. Victorian Attorney-General Rob Hulls has introduced legislation repealing the Vagrancy Act, saying many of the offences had no place in a multicultural and tolerant society. "It is almost 200 years old and is steeped in the language and attitudes of Dickensian England," Mr Hulls said.In related news, U.S. Attorney General Torture Boy is currently reviewing the Vagrancy Act at the request of presidential advisors James Dobson, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, who like the idea of the United States regressing 200 years.
