Casting the Purple Stone


From the Guardian (UK):

Basescu and his aides have been known to wear purple on certain days in an attempt to ward off evil.

From the Wall Street Journal:

Purple, she notes, is a power color. And in most professions, the ultimate question is how powerful you look.

From the Independent (UK):

Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife, Elena, had their own personal witch.

From Wikipedia:

[Nancy Reagan’s] wardrobe included red so often that the fire-engine shade became known as “Reagan red”.

From the text of What Does Joan Say?

As Nancy Reagan’s astrologer for seven years, [Joan] Quigley influenced the timing of the President’s speeches, public appearances, surgery and trips.

In this self-congratulatory tell-all, she also claims that she softened Ronald Reagan’s stance toward Gorbachev, paved the way for a friendly Geneva Summit, helped Reagan win two presidential elections and protected him from potential assassins. She takes credit for helping to shape his “visionary” strategy of particle-beam weapons in space (Star Wars) and for giving First Lady Nancy an image-overhaul.

From the Gospel of John 8:7, the New Testament (1535 edition):

Now whyle they contynued axynge him, he lift him self vp, and sayde vnto them: He that is amonge you without synne, let him cast the first stone.

  2. You’re implying all Americans think Nancy Reagan is sane.

  3. You gave tremendous positive points there. I did a search on the topic and found most peoples will agree with your blog.
