NPR's John Burnett is in Ft. Davis, Texas, the site of a standoff between law enforcement officials and some members of The Republic of Texas separatist group. The group had held two people hostage until this morning. Members have retreated into the West Texas mountains. They are also wanted on a variety of civil and criminal charges related to bad checks and bogus liens on property all over the state.
