Update: Added links from TalkLeft and Crooks and Liars. Crooks and Liars has a link to local coverage (opens in Windows Media Player) of the story. Send the station a comment and tell them what you think.
I’ve been keeping up with the story I blogged about earlier; Zach’s story, that is.
I’ve blogged about it in three other places. A few more blogs have covered it, most notably:
- Crooks and Liars (with link to local media coverage)
- Matt Thomas
- Cherry Blossom Special Here, here, here, here, and here.
- Pam’s House Blend
- River City Mud Company
- The Flypaper Theory
- Morgan Kiss Boys
I’ve passed the word on to some bigger blogs (read: more widely read), and a couple of news sites, in hopes that the story get’s broader coverage.
I’ve also gotten some question as to whether this is “real” or just something people found online. I’m not sure what to look for to prove veracity on this. I haven’t seen anything about it in the news, but there may be something in local Memphis media that I’ve missed or can’t find online. I have been able to find a blog that’s been set up to document the protests outside Refuge, including pictures from the protests. You can also email the protest organizers.
If anyone has any other info, I’m happy to pass it on.
Short of going to Memphis to check things out myself, this is the best I can do.
