Speaking of pervs...

...the Texas raid on the FLDS compound is proceeding to the hearing stage. The news there is full of stories of how the courts, the state bar, law enforcement, social service agencies, and many others are working together to overcome the logistical nightmare of such a big case in such an isolated area so that the kids are protected while everybody gets a fair day in court. The Utah news, on the other hand, is full of histrionics about how the Texas authorities have gone too far and how the children are being traumatized by separation from their parents (as opposed to the trauma of being a child bride [for the girls] or being brainwashed into believing having a child bride is a good idea [for the boys]). This state is just sick.
