70 years ago today - Jul 28, 1953

The ARIZONA REPUBLIC editorial on the recent raid of the polygamous community of Short Creek: "By what stretch of the imagination could the actions of the Short Creek children be classified as insurrection? Were those teenagers playing volleyball in a school yard inspiring a rebellion?" wondered the paper. "Insurrection? Well, if so, an insurrection with diapers and volleyballs!" "Odious and Un-American" and "circus-like" are typical criticisms published elsewhere.
