"Arthur Miller: None Without Sin". August 3, 2006. www.pbs.org . PBS. Web. April 20      2014

After World War 2, Arthur Miller had altered the theater by allowing people to view an honest direction of the country through plays. Miller was born on 1915 and his family struggled financially until Miller had enrolled in the University of Michigan to study playwriting in 1934. Arthur Miller began to work his plays through "The Crucible," which was set in Salem during the Which Hunts in the 177th century.

This website is exquisite because it not only reveals Arthur Miller's past, yet also shows how he endeavored to become a successful play-writer (which he did) due to his financial standings. Miller also became a writer for those who do not have a voice in America (Figuratively and maybe literally). He is an inspirational author who is a very significant gentleman in the American Theater.

“Cults That Never Were: The Satanic Ritual Abuse Scare (SRAS)”. Lecture Material:    Spiritual Community. Virginia Commonwealth University. Web. 20 Apr. 2014.

This webpage discusses the Satanic Ritual Abuse Scare (SARS) that happened in the late 80s and early 90’s. During this event, certain things happened that scared people into thinking that Satanic cults were running amuck. The accused, mostly daycare workers, were blamed on killings and molestations of children in perverted Satanic Rituals. This, of course, wasn’t true. Most of the evidence was either false or blown out of proportion. This site provides much background info and evidence against the idea that there were actually Satanic Cults molesting children and sacrificing babies.
