    Yes, it was Hannah who apparently was persuaded to go back. With all of the talk about the widespread ABUSE against the women and children, I can only imagine the additional abuse she probably would have suffered once they got her back.

    I feel so sorry for them all, including the young boys who are kicked out (because they are competition for the old men).

    And this cult seemed to me to be somewhat different than most of the polygamous cults that we hear about -- in that the husbands do not even live with, or provide much for, or have much contact with their wives + children --- And on the other hand, the wives and children seemed to be much more integrated into the public community, and dressed normally. And even those who had 'escaped' seemed to have much more ability to have contact with those members who are still in the cult.

    I think there are a fair number of people and groups around the country that are trying to help the escapees --- clearly not enough of them. The whole situation is really sad. To me it's always sad with ANY group of of people where one or more ASSUME POWER OVER the others, and inevitably abuse and/or mistreat them.

    There are non-profits here in Utah that do that. I have a friend who works for one.

    But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.
