Sherry sent me this link the other day: Cat turns into woman in P/Harcourt – 5 killed as cultists clash, which is a bit mind-boggling, any way you slice it.
However, even better, I think, was a line from the blog post of Neil Gaiman’s where she’d seen it:
It must be very interesting (or, in turn, quite dangerous) to live in a place where myth is still a living thing.
Something Neil could have said himself, really. Though I suspect he knows a great deal more about the subject than many of us.
Utterly fascinating to ponder, in any case. Especially if we remove the arrogance our western level of civilization wraps us in and consider that we’re part of that statement as well.
I mean, really, just look at the Stanley Cup Championships… 🙂
