Morning Links: Ted Turner’s Compassionate Harem

When Robert Olen Butler’s wife Elizabeth Dewberry left him for Ted Turner, he emailed friends and colleagues: “She will not be Ted’s only girlfriend. Ted is permanently and avowedly nonmonogamous. But though he has several girlfriends, it is a very small number, and he does not take them 
up lightly, and he gives them his absolute support when he does. And 
Elizabeth’s leaving me is as much about the three weeks a month she is alone as it is about the week a month she is with Ted.” [Hollywood Reporter]
