I find this LATimes article a little creepy and my "let them rest!" instinct is starting to set in. Still, they continue to fascinate and my obsession persists, in spite of feeling a little guilty about it.
UPDATE: Clark at Clarkblog points the way to the LAWeekly's story, which seems more thoughtful and thorough. Thanks Clark; I'm still making my way though it, but the link's here.
