i know it will be too late by the time most of you read this but i still want to say that the second part of the pbs frontline documentary “the mormons” comes on at 8 p.m. tonight. pam and i watched the first part last night and it was fascinating. though i know a decent amount about american history and even the history of the lds church i was still not familiar with much of the history that was discussed within the first two hours. i was floored by the mountain meadow massacre. the wikipedia entry on the massacre actually seems to lay less of the blame at brigham young’s feet than the documentary did.
