Today's Salacious News

News outlets are reporting the arrest of Warren Jeffs, the leader of a polygamist branch of the Mormon church. Jeffs is wanted in relation to various matters involving the forced marriage of underage/teenage girls/women to older men.

Now that the Karr news fizzled out, this story will probably be the latest to catch the public eye. Sex sells, after all. Add in the stories of dissident/expelled church members alleging young men were forced out in order for older men to claim the younger women, and there's the start of dramatic headlines good for at least a week of coverage.

I just learned about this cult a couple months ago while roaming around wikipedia. Glad they caught Jeffs!
