    Erik,
    I have read the book mentioned in the article and I have displayed the book in the first preview for my upcoming documentary titled First Amendment: Inside the Amish Swartzentruber sect. It should be released in 3 weeks.

    I trust that with my teams creativity my documentary will keep the attention of the viewers.

    This was a great article.

    Very good piece here. There’s much to digest in this short interview.

    My comments will pertain to tourism only. From my perspective, and speaking for myself only, I do not consider myself a tourist as much as I do a consumer. I realize my place when I am in an Amish community and with few exceptions I will not approach an Amish home unless I am willing to engage in commerce there. That being said, many Amish do invite and may I say “encourage” curious outsiders or tourists (which includes the rude and obnoxious) into their world simply by displaying the signs at the roadside offering goods for sale. In any case, I’ve always been treated well even if I didn’t buy anything.

    Erik-

    I have read your work and I found it readable, evenhanded and scholarly. However, you may want to limit any associations with the movie FIRST AMENDMENT as this film, previewed here: http://www.swartzamish.com/prem1.html is unfortunately not up to the caliber of scholarly work.
