Polygamy now!

The HBO series Big Love must have inspired this proud, polygamous family to start a blog.

In less sexier news, Masson cites an article which details the corporate cronyism in the Mitch Daniels administration.

I so want to click that link, but I think "polygamy now" might set off some sort of work-appropriateness alarm.

It might, but it's a normal blog and I didn't really see anything blatantly offensive.

Why doesn't polygamy ever get to be about 1 woman with multiple husbands? That's why I know something is wrong with it.

I think it's cute that they have a group glamour shot.

Have you read Jon Krakauer's book about polygamist FLDS sects in Utah and Arizona, Under the Banner of Heaven? It was really horrifying. Clearly the motivation for starting a tradition of polygamy was that those old guys liked to get laid by hot young chicks and have complete power over them.

I do watch Big Love on HBO, and find it to be pretty interesting. I don't see the character of Bill as abusive -- just maybe brainwashed/deluded, because I don't buy into their idea of "The Principle."

No, but the book sounds interesting. I have always guessed the mormon version of polygamy was more about power and control than sex, but I may check out that book.

I'm completely with Indygirl on this.
