It's Like "The Village" Only Without the Crappy Ending (oh, wait, this one ends poorly too.)
I must confess I haven't been following the Texas polygamy story too closely (to paraphrase Papa Simpson, I like my beer cold, my tv loud, and my polygamists confined to porn movies set in the not too distant future), but this headline grabbed my attention: "Texas tries to ease polygamist kid's culture shock." Which got me very curious, how much did these kids know about the outside world? I mean, they knew there was an outside world, right? But did they know the details, or just that it was full of processed-food and monogamy? I'd love to see a reality show of these kids in foster care. Cause, really, they're pretty much screwed up already right, what's a little exploitation for my entertainment at this point?
