Saudi Arabia and America
The Slacktivist has a clever post on the Saudi prohibition of sorcery, and the American protection of same. As is usually the case, I agree with much of it (although, of course, I do believe in magic).
It occurs to me that one of the great boons of living in the U.S. is that most people don’t believe in magic. After all, if they did, would they be confiscating my talismans at the airport?
