Author, Stranger alum, and New York Times columnist Lindy West is presenting a humorous slide show called “The Witches Are Coming.” I hope it has something to do with her October 2017 NYT column “Yes, This Is a Witch Hunt. I’m a Witch and I’m Hunting You.” Representative passage: “Setting aside the gendered power differential inherent in real historical witch hunts (pretty sure it wasn’t all the rape victims in Salem getting together to burn the mayor), and the pathetic gall of men feeling hunted after millenniums of treating women like prey, I will let you guys have this one. Sure, if you insist, it’s a witch hunt."
