Double post, but the page that linked to doesn't seem to come up any more.

It's creepy to think about how easily memory can be manipulated, and it's all the more so to when you start thinking about the recovered memory and Satanic ritual abuse hysteria that got whipped up in the '80s.

Whoops, thanks for pointing out the double post. I did do a search for certain words but I guess that Strawberry Shortcake douche post didn't grab my eye.
