Now, inevitably, the incident is the focus of a new documentary, appropriately titled, "Zoo," and recently picked as a selection of next January's Sundance Film Festival, no less. It's being described as a "humanizing" view of a local "normal family" who has a "strange and fatal" encounter. " (Editor & Publisher)

I saw that one and passed on mentioning it. But when it shows at Sundance, I will.

It is the natural consequence of a society that sees no limit on the definition or institution of marriage. The polygamy lobbies are out in force already and "ZOO" is the first salvo of the next amendments.
