“…in 1620, the Mayflower set sail for Virginia. As of this writing, she has still not reached her destination.”

Sacrifice

“AT LEAST SEVENTY wicked witches were melted in last night’s unexpected drizzle. Governor Corbett has declared a state of emergency, and has designated Sunday as a day of prayer and human sacrifice.”

“Hawthorne, Nathaniel. Hawthorne intended The Scarlet Letter to be a work of humor, and was bitterly disappointed when no one seemed to get the joke.

“In a letter to his friend Oliver Wendell Holmes, he wrote that he would have to make the comedy much broader in his next novel, The House of the Seven Gables.”
