16:15 Poly in the Media
Despreocupado sent in Three’s Company: What the heck is polyamory and is it a legitimate way to sustain a romantic relationship? by Liz Langley. More interesting than the article itself are the 151 comments on it, with opinions ranging from the steadfastly monogamous to the misinformed to the poly-educated proclaiming the value of choosing a poly family. 23:00 Amy Gahran sent in this article on Beltane events in Philadelphia, including a commentary on polyamory and jealousy. 26:00 I don’t really disagree too much with the issues as to why the polygamy portrayed in Big Love don’t work that William Saletan enumerates in this article, Big or Me.
