Darn it... I was hoping you would go to the Mountain Meadow one and report back on it. Wish I could be there, it sounds like a great conference. I absolutely love St. George and the surrounding Southern Utah areas. In fact, I just passed through there last weekend! I can't wait to read your posts about the conference.

Yeah, that one did look fairly interesting. It doesn't look like they are describing culpability for the event, but rather other facets of it.
