The SCA recently received a mention in Time magazine (Dec. 2, 2002
issue, pg 90).  After a long article on the soon-to-be-released movie
"The Two Towers" there is a short article called "Feeding on Fantasy."
It mentions the SCA several times in conjunction with the resurgence of
what they call "preoccupation with fantasy, a nostalgic, sentimental,
magical vision of a medieval age."  (Interesting to note also that we
are the only organization they mention).  The author's theory is that
after the events of 9/11, pop culture is turning away from science
fiction and technology.  It should be interesting to see what, if any,
long-term effect the Tolkien based movies have on our overall membership
