What a witch

If your car’s heater broke, would you blame your Wiccan co-worker for putting a spell on you? Would you then tell your boss and get her fired? That’s just what one woman allegedly did in Albany, New York, when she complained about her co-worker Carol Smith to their employer, the TSA. Smith is going to court to fight the decision, which she feels violated her freedom of religion. “We don't cast spells. That's not witchcraft,” Smith told MSNBC in March. “To put a spell on a heater of a car, if I had that kind of power, I wouldn't be working for TSA. I would go buy lottery tickets and put a spell on the balls.”
