Weekend Roundup

The march of the Mormons
The Latter-day Saints are on the rise in the US, and a Republican named Mitt Romney has hopes of becoming the first Mormon president. But the church has one serious image problem: polygamy. Which is why HBO's new drama, about a man with three wives, is stirring up controversy.

What strikes me as controversial in all of this is the fact that Bon Jovi thinks his style has ever been way girlfriend. The waify hipsters of Franz Ferdinand may or may not be able to beat Bon Jovi and his crew in hand to hand combat, but in the style category it's Franz 1, JBJ 0.
