5253...Brigham Young Had 55 Wives

Mormons are in style these days.  A hit Broadway show, The Book of Mormon, the dude who may be elected Prez of the World in a couple of weeks.  If only Brigham Young coulda beat The Irish at South Bend today.

Speaking of Brigham Young, The New York Times has a book review of the great colonizer in today's   edition.  The book is by John G. Turner and is called Brigham Young:  Pioneer Prophet.  In the book it is revealed that Mr. Young had 55 wives.

55 wives.

Seriously, who would want 55 wives?

You miss one birthday, one anniversary you may as well miss them all.
