Idaho is a wierd State. They spend little on transportation and education, and have a few culturally progressive resort towns surrounded by Mormons in the south and toothless hillbillies in the north.
The two friends I know moved to Boise (he is an rehab doctor and his wife had a bakery here in Lakes Country), my cousins family moved to the toothless hillbillies area. They decided they had enough of Alaska and decided to move South.

Have been through the state a couple of times and I like the scenery, just didn't seem like there was much industry in the state.
I haven’t been to Boise in years but in all fairness I know it was on the upswing for quite some time with the tech industry. Very clean city with a low crime rate. Post Falls and CDA are also growing and adding industry. There is practically a zero inventory of homes in the Spokane - CDA metro area.

We are so fvcked.

Western Sussex hasn’t grown like the beach communities, because jobs are scarce and the schools suck. It may be just a matter of time. The gays have discovered Laurel, though.

You want that. They fixed the fuck out of Milford. They haven't seen a 1700s home they didn't want to restore downtown. The only thing is, I'm not sure the pink and purples are necessarily authentic to the colonial era, but who knows? I wasn't there.

Yeah, Milton is the fucking Portland of Delaware now. Rehoboth is the San Francisco.

9-11: some people did something

Let’s try this...

Slavery: some people had some unpaid servants

The Holocaust: some guy killed some Jews

Here’s a good one... “There were bad people on both sides.”

Let’s face it, klam - she pulls the same crap as Trump but you defend her. She minimized 9-11.... I don’t know why you would minimize people who take offense at that. I know you aren’t a choad, so why do you act like one?

Do you think criticism of what she said is inciting violence, or is the overreaction only on the part of the people who are criticizing what she said?

Comedian dies on stage: 'The audience thought it was part of the act'
Comedian Ian Cognito died during a stand-up act in which he joked about dying on stage and then fell silent while the audience continued laughing, thinking it was a joke.

"Imagine if I died in front of you lot here," Cognito, 60, joked on stage during his set Thursday. Andrew Bird, who runs the Lone Wolf Comedy Club in Bicester, England, told the BBC: "Everyone in the crowd, me included, thought he was joking. Even when I walked on stage and touched his arm I was expecting him to say 'boo'."

Category angry millennials, Alex.

CNN Link

The man arrested for allegedly pushing or throwing a child from the third floor of the Mall of America in Minnesota had been banned from the mall in the past and once told police he had anger issues, court records show.

Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, was charged with attempted homicide after witnesses said a man either pushed or threw the 5 -year-old child on Friday morning from the Bloomington mall's third interior level to its first, police said.

In August 2015, witnesses saw Aranda smashing computers on the floor of a Minneapolis library, causing about $5,000 in damage, according to a 2015 complaint. Police were called and arrested him without incident after finding him at a bus stop across the street.
