The Best I Could Do
After what seems like a decade (since January 2011) Utah County, Utah has finally dropped their investigation against Kody Brown and his four wives. The polygamists are officially no longer being investigated for being polygamists (though, let the record show, they are still polygamists). As you know, because you are an avid follower of TLC's Sister Wives, Kody, his four wives and their 16 children (16?! Yes, 16) all moved to Las Vegas last season when their beloved home of Lehi, Utah launched a bigamy investigation against them. The Browns countered with a law suit against the county claiming Utah's bigamy statute violated their constitutional rights to due process, equal protection, free exercise of religion, free speech and freedom of association. Utah is now kinda like "meh" about their whole bigamy law and is saying, basically, "As long as no one's getting hurt, we're cool with it. Would you please stop suing us now?"
Happy news for the Browns. But bittersweet news for the rest of us. I'm glad for them, I guess. But this clearly means we won't be getting the courtroom drama on Sister Wives that we were expecting. I kind of felt like I was owed that since it's the only reason I was watching. That show is, let's just admit it, so fucking boring I'd rather watch a financial news ticker for an hour once a week. This just put the nail in the coffin of Sister Wives. Sorry. But watch. It's true.
