Dollopween 30: Witchcraft Spells in Cosmopolitan

aka, continuing our account of How Rash Decisions Were in the 1970’s.

So many things wrong. Faith into kitsch, or actually putting dangerous spells into the mitts of dumb bra-burning broads…it’s just tacky all the way ’round. Minus extra points for using the phrase “modern sorcerers”.
