Jersey Devil

Excellent episode - mostly.

I'm looking forward to reading the article, this is an incredible explaination of how a legend comes out of virtually nowhere - seriously, none of the earlier treatments (except Brian Dunning's) has even done the basic research. What i wish though (and maybe the article will cover it) was that the big flap of 1909 - where did that come from? And I'd like to see when the other fictional incidents such as w/ Stephen Decater were created. But this is still the most thorough gutting of a 'cryptid' since the Springheel Jack episode.
