54. Imagine my shock upon moving here from the San Francisco Bay area....

...when I drove into town one day and saw 3 fully robed members of the KKK standing on the street corner in serious protest. (sorry, I can't remember what their signs said, or if said signs were even legible).

I guess that was just the warm up for what happened at the high school the following Halloween when one boy dressed up in black face paint and two of his buddies dressed up in their father's KKK robes and put a noose around his neck, as they led him around campus.

When the town's weekly newspaper came out with an article about it, I remember that some of the town's good ol' boys were quoted as saying, "Whul shit, theys just some of our young'ens out havin a little funin." "Ain't nobody got no reason to take offense".

I kid you not. This is a really small town. Everyone in town knows what prescriptions I buy at the pharmacy. NSA? Nah, doesn't bother me a bit.

Upon edit: I almost forgot. One issue of our weekly paper had a guest editorial that was written by our local lawyer in praise of the swastika. You can't make stuff like this up!
