Fair is Foul and Foul is Fair

Crazy item of the month: School Says Halloween Disrespectful to Witches.

Should we ban the presentation of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" in America classrooms too?

Third Witch:

Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
Witches' mummy, maw and gulf (4.1.23)
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark,
Liver of blaspheming Jew,
Gall of goat, and slips of yew
Silver'd in the moon's eclipse,
Nose of Turk and Tartar's lips,
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver'd by a drab, (4.1.31)
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For the ingredients of our cauldron.
