ST. MARIES, Idaho (AP) - A group of survivalists wants to build a giant walled fortress in the woods of the Idaho Panhandle, a medieval-style city where residents would be required to own weapons and stand ready to defend the compound if society collapses.

The proposal is called the Citadel and has created a buzz among folks in this remote logging town 70 miles southeast of Spokane, Wash. The project would more than double the population of Benewah County, home to 9,000 souls.

Locals have many questions, but organizers so far are pointing only to a website billing the Citadel as "A Community of Liberty."

"There is no leader," Christian Kerodin, a convicted felon who is a promoter of the project, wrote in a brief email to The Associated Press. "There is a significant group of equals involved ... each bringing their own professional skills and life experiences to the group.

1. Encourage this . . .

Encourage this idea with gusto. The more wingnuts and gun freaks who move there the better. Then, after they have built the wall around their community, back off a hundred yards and build another wall. The second wall, of course, would be to keep them in.

2. Better yet, encourage them to take it overseas

I hear the ol Jonestown land is pretty cheap, and they wouldn't even need a wall. Go live freely without big nasty scary government trying to keep you down.
