Sunday 18 December 2011, Olympia—I was in the Legislative Building for an Occupy Olympia/Wall Street solidarity General Assembly. One of my friends from the former village where we lived pointed out these lamps to me, and said they were reminiscent of "Moloch."

I am interested in Moloch. My understanding is that this mythical character, an ancient deity, stems from Babylon.

Do you know anything more? Please tell. I am interested. Thank you!
