  2. Sure they have a diverse board: white men, rich white men, old white men, straight white men and cis white men.

  3. I find it curious that Mr. Romney is still referred to as "Governor" in news bites. He hasn't been the Governor of Mass for a while now. Maybe using ex-Governor is better.
    Here in Canada once your term is up - it's up and so is your title. Just saying.

  4. It will be interesting to see if they back to their glory days of homophobia with the Kingpin of the Mormon church
