    The Sorcerer of Wry ~ Part 2.

    Cinderella encourages readers to visit “The Sorcerer of Wry ~ Part 1” before reading this installment. As in Part 1, all characters in Part 2 are fictitious; any resemblance to actual persons is purely coincidental. The same goes for the fictional towns. They are mere figments of a scary fairy tale. § The Locked Doors, the Master of Wry, the Stitching Witch and Mono Even fiends, fools, frauds and fatheads have a path to redemption. In Wry, it was no different, since the Master of the House watched over it just as surely as the ruler lived there. The ruler was Dreadful, closely associated with the Temple of Grandiosity, an…

    The Sorcerer of Wry ~ Part 1.

    Cinderella took a day off to visit “Wry,” Connecticut recently, seeking landmarks vacated and forgotten in the time that has passed since December 2012. This trip, while limited in scope, was large in significance, as places reveal much about the people who haunt them. What follows is a “scairy” tale inspired by this trip ~ and, not coincidentally, by Mozart’s “The Magic Flute.” All characters are fictitious; any resemblance to actual persons is purely coincidental. The same goes for the fictional towns. They are mere figments of a scary fairy tale. § Once, in the mid-1970s, there lived a sorcerer named Sarastro, who had a talent for creating incendiary situations…

    Housekeeping.

    “As we wrap up a busy summer at Sandy Hook School, we have a great deal of news to share. As you know, uncertainties surrounding our school resulted in the late notification of classroom teaching assignments. In order to ensure the best possible start to the school year for all of our students, your children’s previous teachers meticulously prepared multiple class lists to meet any of several contingencies. I am extremely grateful to them for their many extra efforts and double-checking!” So begins the first paragraph on the first page of “The Sandy Hook School Connection, August 28, 2012,”  written by Dawn Hochsprung, principal of Sandy Hook Elementary school from…

    All that matters.

    Alex Jones thinks the New World Order’s planned American civil war is off and running. See this video. Cinderella admires a man who can work himself up into a sweat over something other than football, gourmet pizza and the usual. The alternative news media, including Infowars, rose up out of the first amendment in order to support the second amendment, the 4th, the 5th, the 6th and the 10th; in fact, the entire U.S. Constitution. Without a burly, well-muscled first amendment, the rest of it atrophies quickly – as we are seeing. Cinderella agrees. Here’s to unabridged free speech, the freedom to voice and exercise religious beliefs; the freedom to…

    A “scairy” tale.

    ~ “Well, I guess there’s a sucker born every minute.” ― David Hannum Cinderella has been busy with research and related work of late, which accounts for the silence of a week. But she’s noticed that readers continue to visit, and sincerely appreciates their interest. Part of our silent time has been spent looking into obscure and well-known biographies and histories around and about what is sometimes called the “bedroom” of New York City – incorporated towns in the orbit of Newtown.  Woodbury, for one. Bethel, for another. And, of course, there are more. All of these towns have something in common: They know which side their bread is buttered…

  • Illusions/Delusions,  Sandy Hook

    A little night meeting.

    Cinderella’s research often turns up items that end up in the back of the sock drawer. They can’t be paired with anything else and aren’t substantive enough to merit much more than a few paragraphs. However, this one seemed to merit attention. The meeting that stoically went on.  We all know what the MSM says Newtown educators and officials were doing on the day of 12-14-12. Cinderella wondered exactly what they were doing that night. She discovered that, for some of them, it was business as usual. If you click here, you’ll find the Newtown Board of Education’s Sub-Committee Agendas/Minutes for 2012. Below is a screen shot on which I’ve…

    Free lunch breadcrumb trail leads straight to Chalk Hill Middle School.

    This post provides evidence that Chalk Hill Middle School of Monroe, Connecticut may have been used as a replica of Sandy Hook Elementary School long before January 2013 – perhaps as early as 2011. The evidence is found in a breadcrumb trail of free and reduced-rate lunch stats used to calculate high-speed Internet discounts for schools. Newtown’s 2012 paperwork includes Chalk Hill Middle School, whose numbers are identical to that of Sandy Hook Elementary. Truly glaring – but buried. Fortunately, Cinderella has a shovel as well as a broom. §   Wolfgang Halbig has been sending Cinderella some interesting documents about free and reduced-price school lunches. It’s disturbing that even…
