On this day in history, October 31st of 1692 in the town of Ipswich, Massachusetts, Amy Godnobbler was convicted for being a witch. She was sentenced to death by burning at the stake at 9 am. After her death, Amy’s body descended into heaven, and after three hours it returned to the scene of her burning where she appeared to her fellow witches who at that time were also burning alive or being crushed between gigantic rocks, thus proving her claims of infinite life and the eternal redemption of all witches, ghouls, ghosts, goblins and devils ever eager to die and haunt the living. Their annual day of resurrection and celebration became Halloween. Trick or treat!

Everyone has good swings in the big leagues, but you’ve got to see the baseball. You see the baseball, I mean, that’s what it’s all about. You work on your swing, but its all about contact point. If I pull the ball, I pull the ball. But I’ve got to swing through the ball and its all about contact point.
