Cicero at Red State, parses through CPS' court arguments and compiled an excellent "Appendix" including links to resources, news reports and some primary documents.
Also, here are some of the important blog sources I've been watching regarding the Eldorado polygamist raids:
- The Polygamy Files
- Introspection of a Plural Wife
- Messenger and Advocate
- Trent Nelson, Photojournalist
- Feminist Mormon Housewives
- The Common Room
- Texas Polygamy
- Prairie Fire Journal
- FLDS Children Have Right to Breast Milk
Finally, just to have mentioned it, Salt Lake City Tribune reporter Brooke Adams, who also writes The Polygamy Files (mentioned above) has been reporting circles around the 20 or so Texas reporters assigned to this story from various media, along with her sidekick photojournalist Trent Nelson. If you want to know what's going on, read their stuff. Both appear well-connected in polygamist communities, and exhibit a deep understanding of the subculture they're writing about and its history. Their published reports, both in the Tribune and on their blogs, have consistently broken stories all other media missed. They typically even seem two or three days ahead of police investigators (and counting).
I couldn't have been more pleased to discover Adams' writing, and learned a great deal recently going back to read some of her old clips.
