People used to think that women who healed with herbs were witches. Have you read some of the material about moral panic and obesity that's been coming out the last year or two? Basically, it says that our current culture puts fat people in the role of witches right now. It's wrong and it will change over time, just like we don't hang witches anymore.

Plus, I agree with ThicknPretty and others. Kaplods, you're one of my heros and gurus and I quote you to other people often. If I knew you in real life, I would be headed over to your house to give you a big hug right now! And help you put on that Halloween costume -- it sounds fantastic!
