I ended up not going an seeing anything witchy in Salem. I decided it would just piss me off to hear a watered down version. Things are never simple and they are rarely black and white. Instead I walked around the old harbor part of town.
I ran into Walgreens and bought a neti pot and a hot pot. I deliberately left my neti at home-and it was a bad move. The hot pot was a purchase brought on by heating water for my morning Starbuck's via. The water was brown, BEFORE the coffee was put in.
