Local Witch Fired

She's the witch to watch. Alicia Folberth of Derby, a Wiccan high priestess, taped a cable television program Monday, hours after she was fired from her job, ostensibly because of her need for time off to practice her faith.

Folberth, 39, said she was fired as a graphic designer from U.S. Surgical Inc. in North Haven after seven years because she began requesting unpaid holidays off.

Check out the site for the church here.

I have never met Alicia in person, but we have corresponded. The Beltane festival that she organizes each year is quite popular in this area. Looks like she'll have more time to get it set up this year.

    She should get some of those faith-based dollars that Bush has been handing out. The church could even pay her for doing so out of any proceeds.

    At best, watching the administration squirm at being called on their "but it's non-denominational" stuff would be good for laughs.

    At worst, she'd have a paying job.
