The Town Scryer is a mixed bag of humor, socio-political observations and ephemera from the perspective of a eclectic Pagan veteran of the counter-culture.

Amish Mug Shots
Eight Amish men
were arrested and booked into the Graves Country (KY) jail
for refusing to pay fines issued for failure to attach orange safety triangles to their horse-drawn buggies.
The Swartzentruber Amish sect members said they could not display the triangles as it would violate a religious decree prohibiting bright colors.
They received sentences ranging from three to 10 days and provided dark-colored jumpsuits in lieu of the jail’s traditional orange coveralls.
Proof that the format makes even the most harmless of people look like hardned dangerous criminals.
Be seeing you.
