Summary
Tucker analyzes the urban legends that have spread in the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. He divides these urban legends into two types: legends from and about members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and legends from and about non-LDS. He believes that the non-LDS folklore serves the traditional folklore function of being a cathartic release valve, but that LDS urban legends surrounding the attacks is not only cathartic but reinforces the three central missions of the LDS Church: to perfect the Saints, to spread the gospel, and to redeem the dead
