You really have to check out The Trickster and the Paranormal, by George Hansen (http://www.tricksterbook.com/). This examination of the "Trickster phenomenon" (which is ubiquitous when it's not pervasive) is beyond profound. And don't take it to be a debunking: if you do, you're tricking yourself into a vulnerable complacency. The sacred is real but it turns up in the most unlikely places.
Thanks to you and the entire SOF team.
