Ok here is a quiz for us not in Pennsylvania or on our way
to Pennsylvania--

There is a new book out titled Who Are You People?

A Personal Journey Into the Heart of Fanatical Passion in America.
The author spent her time exploring various people with hobbies
or what "passionate fanatics had that she didn’t."

I haven't found a copy yet, so I don't know if she includes
the SCA or not. I caught the interview on NPR on Sunday.

The author asks "Everyone knows a passionate fanatic, those people who 
are passionately, fanatically, obsessively devoted to some Thing. We 
work with them, shop in the same strip malls with them, some of us are 
even married to them – and I use the word “them” deliberately. Them as 
in other. Them as in otherworldly. Them as in… /what's up with that?/
But have you ever wondered if you might be a little over the top in your 
/own/ interests? If you can relate to any one of these statements, you 
may one of them:"
