Anyway, thanks for being a step in the right direction and using some really good quotes from Duane (Marshall). He's pretty special in my eyes, taking on this PPD thing every year.-- Maenwyn Rëti

In response to Denise Lozano's article, "Pagan Party," I wish to clarify a few points of error. First, "pagan" comes from the word "paganus," meaning peasant. Root word pagus: a village or country district. Common definition: anyone not Christian, Jewish, or Muslim. This includes numerous other religious or spiritual beliefs such as Hinduism, Buddism, Voodoo (and all its related splitoffs: Santeria, Candomble, etc.), Strega, and too many others to name. They do not resemble the description given by the person she interviewed, who happens to be Wiccan.
Interviews with Wiccans have been done a few times before by your newspaper. I feel it is time to give other religions and spiritual beliefs the courtesy of the same. At least interview someone with unbiased knowledge of other beliefs. These beliefs are just as valid as Christianity or Wicca and should be given the same media attention to try to gain acceptance from the entire community.-- Cecilia Jones
