	Could you explain to me, please, exactly what bits of the
 emacs policy are wrong? I seem to have missed those.

 ... but as records of courts and justice are admissible, it can
 easily be proved that powerful and malevolent magicians once existed
 and were a scourge to mankind.  The evidence (including confession)
 upon which certain women were convicted of witchcraft and executed
 was without a flaw; it is still unimpeachable.  The judges' decisions
 based on it were sound in logic and in law.  Nothing in any existing
 court was ever more thoroughly proved than the charges of witchcraft
 and sorcery for which so many suffered death.  If there were no
 witches, human testimony and human reason are alike destitute of
 value. Ambrose Bierce, "The Devil's Dictionary"
