...Who In the Hell Writes These Headlines?:

Polygamists Block Girl Hunt

It's a Birmingham News reprint of an AP article, which, incidentally, does not use this egregious title, and it isn't linked on, so you'll just have to take my word for it.

This definitely falls into the category of "what were they thinking?"


AP now reports that authorities were able to enter the polygamists' Texas compound peacefully and are currently searching for the 16-year-old girl who reported that she had been forced to marry a 50-year-old man and have a baby at fifteen. They haven't yet located her. This story makes my skin crawl.
