I have no intention of that. I do however think it is beyond destructive and highly divisive to hear or see "right wing" lumped in with "conservative, "Christian", "extremist", "racist" or "nazi", when it is a complete fabrication perpetuated on a susceptible public. College students are led to believe Hitler was a Republican because he was a "right wing extremist and racist"???

I have no room for racism or any other "groupings" of any differences normally exploited by the slick tongued on the unsuspecting.

You very well may. Kalispell has become the destination du jour for white supremacists.

I'm moving from SoCal back to Montana. And a while back I realised there's one thing about SoCal that I'll miss... seeing black faces. A bit of human beauty that's rare in MT.

On a side note, as a former licensed asbestos abatement supervisor, I would not hesitate to live in Libby from the envirinmental standpoint. Why? I am not a smoker. It is a proven fact that 99% of all Mesothelioma and lung cancer cases attributed to asbestos exposure occurred in smokers. 99%... Why? Because nicotine has the effect of paralyzing the bronchial hairs that guard the lungs from intake of contaminants. The same reason a person begins coughing when they attempt to quit smoking is what keeps them from asbestos-related disease. Just thought prospective Libby residents might want some reality on the asbestos issue.

Very interesting, and biologically not at all surprising. Thanks for the info.

This thread has wandered about as far away from the topic as I'm going to let it. Let's get back on track please.

A question that occurs to me... there probably aren't enough blacks in MT to be statistically significant, but I'm wondering if there might be more blacks in the NW than elsewhere in the state (discounting the Air Force Base at Great Falls, which I'd assume has the highest percentage due to all the southern airmen). Would be interesting to do a by-county map of such stats, just to see. Hmm, maybe when someone has time, a little foray thru C-D's stats.

Nice job! Interesting to say the least. Seems to be pretty much "where the jobs are" for the most part.
