Calif. Religious Sect Leader Committed to Mental Hospital

The leader of the California religious sect whose members went missing this weekend has been found and hospitalized on a 72 hour involuntary mental hold. Authorities say when found, she was confused.

The 13 sect members have been found and are safe. Authorities say they were preparing for or awaiting "the rapture or some catastrophic event." The found members say "they had no intention of harming themselves."

Sounds like the authorities over-reacted. Then again, I happened to watch "2012" yesterday on cable, and no one believed Woody Harrelson either ... except John Cusack, and maybe the Mayans.
