It's starting to disturb me - as a sociologist, and an English speaker - that journalists continue to use "Polygamist" as the first word in headers about cases like this. That this rapist/torturer/nut claimed to be betrothed to more than one woman is almost irrelevant, and certainly not the damning lead-in that someone must think it is. Maybe the writer is just trying to ride the (search engine) coat tails of the YFZ Ranch cases. But, c'mon.... There must be dozens of nouns that would be better for this, um, fellow than "Polygamist".
