Wow, the list is long and illustrious. There are so many trout-slappable alternatives. How can anyone choose just one?

Wait, I've got it. Laurie Cabot. Well, she is the first in a long line of so-called "Witches" who seem to prostitute themselves for publicity. I mean, really, what does it mean, really to be named as the "Official Witch of Salem"? If anyone tried to nominate me, or the Aunts or Gilly as the "official" Witches of Crescent Harbour, I think we would all lock our doors and shun the spotlight. Certainly, I couldn't expect my daughters, Kylie and Antonia to have to deal with all of that mess.

I've got nothing against someone who goes for the limelight to build their business. Surely, we all owe Laurie Cabot a debt of gratitude for having made being a Witch not such a scary thing as it once was here in New England and around the rest of the country. The kitschy black flowing robes that she wore every time she left her house since the 50's was her trademark. She wanted to be where Sybil Leek was at that time, and she ended up doing it. Having the Governor of your state declare you the "Official Witch of Salem", is quite something. The unabashed self-promotion in the form of vanity certainly paid off.

Recently, I have been told that Laurie had a spiral tattooed on the side of her face. I wonder if she painted that target there as the sweet spot to aim for when I hit her with this fish.
