"It's a good day to die."

The Courier ran a story on the judge's release of documents in the James Ray sweat-lodge case, so I figured it would be interested in what's in those documents. So far, nothing.

The AP has some fascinating bits in a story today datelined Prescott. WaPo has it, and I saw others yesterday. Why doesn't the Courier?

Update, midnight:
The story shows up for Wednesday, a few grafs longer than the WaPo version, with stuff added from the affadavits, which are fascinating.

It was a fascinating story. If you've ever sat in ceremony with a solid leader for a spiritual sweat, this fella's alleged comments - if they are true - will make your manly Iron John hair stand on end. It appears to be a mockery of the ceremony.

The picture I get from the affadavits is of a classic megalomaniac with delusions of grandeur, and nothing good's likely to come of that.

We can be grateful, I suppose, that he didn't last long enough to gather a really big group a people to take over the cliff with him.

What I wonder is whether the people who facilitated Ray's rise to prominence, notably Oprah Winfrey, will express any regret for enabling his mania.
