Brett Kavananaugh might want to peruse Witchipedia's entry on protection from curses. It's knowledge he'll apparently need Saturday when a Brooklyn book store hosts a public hexing of the newest Supreme Court justice. Thousands are interested in the sold-out event at Catland Books, though just 60 people will attend, with half of the $600 in proceeds going to support women’s and LGBT charities, reports USA Today. Recited passages will aim to arouse the hex against Kavanaugh and "the patriarchy," reports the Guardian. "Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire," says store co-owner Dakota Bracciale. Last year, Catland Books hosted three events delivering hexes to President Trump, Time reports. (Perhaps they'd have better luck with this manuscript penned by 17-century witches.)
