For the past month BB! saw quite an increase in hits due to people looking for information on Esmie Tseng and her situation. To people still looking for information I point you to Kansas City Soil, and Joe Miller, who is doing an excellent job posting on an on-going basis the details of this story as they unfold as well as personal commentary from himself and others in the metro. This tendrilled approach to life, art, news and community is what make blogging such an exciting media and Kansas City Soil shines as a standard bearer of the form.
Anthony Tao of the Kansas City Chinese Journal has also written a well-informed, 3-part series on Esmie.
