Linda Stirling Unmasked: The Black Whip

: Dragged from her chariot by a mob of fanatical vigilante Christian monks, the revered astronomer was stripped naked, skinned to her bones with sharp oyster shells, stoned and burned alive as possibly the first executed witch in history.

The Bling Ring Movie Review: More Bling Than Ring Of Truth In A Post-Occupy World

          The Real Bling Ring: Where's The Bling?
