Excellent source - my compliments to whoever found it. I discovered some errors in my pre-conceptions, which is always delightful and humbling. If anyone has any sources which evaluate Ms. Yronwode's authority, I'd love to see them.
May I offer two minor suggestions?
Suggestion 1: The first time through I was confused by the voice - I hadn't realized you'd shifted to a quote. I don't know if you have a convention for identifying quoted text, but I've frequently used:
text text text Citation
That has the advantage of setting off the quoted text and making the citation clearer. But I thought I'd ask before I made such a significant edit.
Suggestion 2: You may wish to provide a link to <a href="http://www.luckymojo.com/hoodoohistory.html">Hoodoo History</a>. Obviously I was able to find the source from what you supplied, but I thought it might be useful to others who are looking for a source.
Thanks for you input! I've linked to the site, which is a great one for this area. For quotations we have a template that you can find at the Quotation template page
and I've now formatted the quotation accordiningly. cheers Missyjack

Catherine - The text you have altered is text we took directly from the Official WB Site on a feature called the Pad of Definitions. I have included a link on the page to your great resource, but please be assured the text was not taken from you, unless by Warner Bros. cheers Missyjack
