odds & ends


"I put a spell on you...", 2013

(see image)

At noon on Friday, August 16th, 2013 someone called 911 in Homestead, Florida because a woman had approached her (or his) house and threatened "to put voodoo" on her. The reason I know this is because I was standing in the Homestead Police Department building about to make an inquiry when the local 911 operator, who sits in front of a darkened glass window that also functions as the reception desk, took the call. She was very polite, took a description of the perpetrator and instructed the person on the other end of the line to call back if the woman returned.
