Cute. Don't forget the "R" part of David R. Jones and the "Scott" part
of Jason D. Scott  they brings to mind Reginald Scott and his "A
Discoverie of Witchcraft," published in 1585. That Mr. Scott, a
contemporary of John Dee, hated witchcraft as much as our Mr. Scott
does, but for different reasons. Strangely, Scott's anti-witchcraft
book was ordered to be burned by King James I of England, who wished
thereby to refute Mr. Scott's beliefs, while averring his own hatred
of witchcraft. You see, Mr. Scott was a rationalist skeptic debunker
of the paranormal and claimed that witchcraft was all fraud (a Tom
Schulerish stance), while King James believed fully in witchcraft's
reality but despised what he perceived to be its inherent and
intrinsic link to devil worship (a somewhat Jason Dean Scottish
stance), to which point James wrote his own refutation of Scott's
tome, called "Daemonologie." Meanwhile. John Dee, a Christian mage
accused of conjuring devils through witchcraft, appealed to James for
vindication of the charge, but was not granted such protection by the
devil-obsessed king of England. 'Twas a regular newsgroup flame-fest
of the 16th century.
