Someone reminded me this morning that the dreaded Easter week with its masked anti-musical terrors and worship of death was about to come and, yeah, it seems that the old ghosts of the Judeo-Christian terror are not dead at all, that the guillotine left too many heads on their shoulders.
The Spanish Inquisition, of course, continues its work, and has yesterday indicted 44 more people accused of witchery. Now they call it "belonging to terrorist band", but the real charges are just to be active in politics: issuing a press conference, speaking in a political meeting, or attempting to run as candidate in the so-called "democratic elections". Things like that.
If you are Basque and proud, you are in their list.
