When I was 19 I was Baker Acted for possessing a copy of G.I. Gurdjieff's "Beelzebub's Tales to his Grandson". The arresting officer was actually just upset that I wouldn't produce ID prior to being given a reason for being pulled over. But the reason he gave was that in searching my car he became suspicious that I was an occultist. Because of one book! Man, is he good.
But Tallahassee is still the Bible Belt.
I wonder if it would have made a difference to explain that Gurdjieff was a Sufi, not an occultist. This did occur prior to September 11th, so maybe I should have said something.
