Yesterday, Virginia Governor Tim Kaine pardoned Virginia’s only convicted witch.  Yes, 300 years ago, Grace Sherwood was accused of witchery.  She was thrown into the Lynnhaven River with her thumbs tied to her feet..and she floated.  She served seven years in jail before she was released and now, thanks to the Governor, she’s been pardoned.
