I have been noticing unfortunate references to *evil witches* and the like- I am sure you unfortunately also know what I mean- in way too many of the admittedly elderly library of books at my children's school. How upset does this make you? I remove the offensive abjective (evil, wicked etc) when and if I can- but the picture is usually (also) mean/nasty. It makes me mad- and I am *only* an atheist, not a *witch*!! What can/should I do?! As a parent and classroom volunteer... Am I getting *all fired up!!* over nothing?

I think you are doing the right thing by substituting nicer words in place of the bad ones. I don't think I as a parent would ask that any book be removed from any library. Some of us Pagan Witches do get upset over the negative pictures but we have to educate from a noncombative stand point. We mostly try to present ourselves as everyday people and show how we do care about everyone not just our own kind. And when asked what we believe we can present it in a more relaxed way. Trust me we have come a long way. At least we have others seeing the things that offend us. When not long ago we could not even discuss these things any where now we are able.
