If you're going to be an openly practicing witch and newspaper columnist at the same time this is sort of a prerequisite article to write. The wand was a broomstick and the broom handle itself was a measuring stick to how crops would grow, how many children a newly married couple would have and so forth. At least that's how the legends go. I'm not buying into it despite the variety or handsomeness.
