One of my readers asked if I could write more about cargo cults.
I don't have any personal experience with the John Frum cult on Tanna. One of Bethany's friends is the daughter of a student who has been converted from the cult and has been working as a Pastor amongst his people. So I'll try and have a chat or two to find out some more.
It will take me a little while to write something thoughtful about cargo cults. For now, here are some links that give some basic information.
Wikipedia on cargo cults in general and John Frum in particular.
