Until Once Upon a Time begins!  I'm on Pacific Time so I'll have to wait.  First I need to get our dinner put together.  We're haveing chilli, then I want to go over to church for the congregation meeting.  Our church is welcomming some new members and we are voteing them in.

So, Hansel and Grettle appear tonight.  I never thought of them as countrymen with Cinderella and Snow.  I guess they are all from the same "world" so they don't all have to come from the same country.  This is makeing me want to dig out the fairtale book I have been reading to my kids for the past 20 years.  I want to keep the writers of the show honest here, no bending the stories to fit.  See you Monday.

Well, within the fairytale world, Snow white and her prince are not from the same place as King Midas' daughter (whome he was supposed to marry). So, technically I guess that makes them from two different kingdoms/countries.  So, not sure how many countries all the characters are from.

Story of Hansel and Grettell has always scared the crap out of me but watching it on TV and bringing it to life REALLY scared me. Why are all evil witches women??? Can someone answer that?

 Mr Gold isn't a witch or a warlock, he is just some kind of Evil Entity.

I think the answer is...everyone loves their Daddy.  There are exceptions of course.  Step mom is the common thread all evil witches have and hell hath no furry like a woman scorned.  Aren't most all the fairy tales written hundreds of years ago when women were oppressed so they probably got a bad rap when they were strong women.  Aaaand Rumplestiltskin is a man, so ther is that.
