Last touch added to Proctor’s Ledge Memorial

The dedication now more than a week past, the City of Salem added a final touch to the Witchcraft Trials Memorial at Proctor’s Ledge – warning signs. One says no entry after dusk, the other no climbing on the slope. Such signs detract from the solemnity of the site but are likely necessary in these litigious times. Not that either sign will actually deter the actions warned against, and may actually induce adolescents, or adolescents at heart, to pursue the actual behaviors inveighed against. Sigh.
