Also, today at 11:00 AM MST and 7:00 PM MST, Radio West will discuss the episode:

In the latest episode of HBO's "Big Love," the character Barb is seen taking
part in an LDS temple ceremony. Members of the LDS church consider these
ceremonies private and sacred - and some are calling for a boycott of HBO and
its parent company. Monday on RadioWest, we're using the Big Love example to
