Jennifer and I tried to get in to see Wicked Sunday using the 2-hour-before-curtain lottery. Didn’t win. (24 tickets for about 100 people).

On the way home we talked about the characters of the witches, and while I object to what seems to be an attempt to humanize the Wicked Witch of the West (I don’t know how it ends yet), I had to agree that Glinda was kind of a jerk in The Wizard of Oz. Letting Dorothy go on that hazardous and technically unnecessary journey … and then saying Dorothy “had to learn it for herself” (even though she didn’t learn it, and Glinda had to tell her).

Anyway, between carving pumpkins today, Jenn found this cartoon on the Web that seems to sum things up quite nicely.
