    It's ironic that you cite Pilling as (presumably) an example of clear 
    and "unmystical" cribs.  Many feel they are cryptic indeed, and as you 
    probably know, they are notorious for their inaccuracies and 
    limitations.  Don't get me wrong -- I love 'em and was able to read 
    them with no problems within weeks of learning to dance, but from what 
    I've observed and been told, my experience was not the norm . . .
    
    Most dances I go to do not rely soley on cribs, anyway.  In these 
    parts, 99.9% of the time, dances are always briefed at a social event.  
    If the crib wasn't crystal clear, the briefing often helps to clarify.
