Chapter 5: To the Courts

Bill Neal University of North Texas Press PDF



To the Courts

From Guns to Gavels

AS THE STORY OF THE BLOODY Boyce-Sneed feud continued

to unfold for more than two years—more melodramatic than any modern soap opera—lurid newspaper accounts of a scandalous romance, the stalking, the killings, and the sensational murder trials titillated readers all across America and Canada (where the press continued to take an unusually condescending and voyeuristic interest). Every twist of the tale seemed even more unbelievable than the last, and it not only shocked the nation but shook the pillars of West

Texas society.

The courtroom dramas, riveting enough as they were in their own right, also served to bring into sharp focus the marked differences between the liberal values emerging in the northern states and the traditional Victorian morals, customs, and religious beliefs still so deeply imbedded in southern culture—all this at the dawning of the new century when these “Old South” values were first beginning to be seriously challenged.

3 Seliger 2009: “Commodify Your Talent”

Julie Hemment Indiana University Press ePub

While liberal newspapers jubilantly reported Nashi’s demise (it had ostensibly been disbanded), the media announced the launch of some new high-profile federal youth events. Indeed, 2009 had been declared Russia’s Year of Youth (God molodezhi, or Godmol, as it was abbreviated). Its flagship event, scheduled to take place at a lakeside resort in Tver’ region (about 190 kilometers outside the city of Tver’) was the summer educational camp, Seliger 2009.

Official accounts and promotional materials emphasized this event’s distinctiveness from the projects that had preceded it, energetically denying its association with Nashi. This, newspapers claimed, was no longer a narrow Nashi forum (as past Seliger camps had been); Seliger 2009 was organized by the newly founded Federal Youth Affairs Agency in partnership with the Ministry of Sports, Tourism, and Youth Policy. It was a competitive forum that invited all “talented” youth to apply from across the federation.
