I have read all the good reasons to live and work and play in Montana.
And I like them all. However, could there be things not to like about Montana?
I'd like to know a few of the things that are not so great about Montana.
Please be honest here.

Just a few:

- Increasing numbers of liberal-commie-pinko-swine-Democrats
- Large numbers of liberal environmentalists who have put everything extractive in gridlock and cost thousands of jobs
- The first two are in direct correlation to each other
- That about sums it up
- Oh, catch and release freaks on streams and rivers

But I love it here!

1. If you like good crusty bread: rye bread, kaiser rolls, etc., or other specialty breads: onion rolls, onion boards, bagels, bialys, bulkeys, challah, etc., you ain't gonna find it in Montana.

2. Depending where you might be located in Montana, the nearest kosher pastrami sandwich is a 4 to 10 hour trip, give or take and hour or two, to Calgary in Alberta, Canada.

As a huge live music fan, Montana is less than satisfying for that.
We do get some live music, but I often times find myself having to travel to Spokane or Seattle to see the bands I love.

Of course, if you know how to MAKE those things, there's plenty of wheat!

I don't know about all that other stuff but I've never had any trouble finding rye bread, bagels, kaiser rolls or onion rolls in the stores that I shop at here in Montana. Kosher items are scarce though, all I can find that is Kosher are hot dogs and knockwurst.

Used to be you could get a lot of variety breads from the in-store bakeries at Buttrey's and Albertsons, and variety meats too... did that go away?

Calling something rye bread, bagels, kaiser rolls or onion rolls does not make them rye bread, bagels, kaiser rolls or onion rolls.

Yes, kosher meat may be scarce but not other items: about 90% of the canned, packaged and frozen items in Walmart, Smiths, Albertsons, etc., are certified kosher, and marked as such on the outside of the can, package or bag, by one of the several major kosher certifying agencies:

Circle-U (U inside a circle): OUkosher.org
Star K (K inside a 5-pointed outline of a star): Star-K Kosher Certification
Circle K (K inside a circle): OK Kosher
Kof K (K inside the Hebrew letter kof): Kof K
cRc (Small capital C on either side of a Capital R): Chicago Rabbinical Council

Note: Texas-K (K inside of an outline map of Texas) is now a subsidiary of cRc

Albertsons has in-store kosher bakeries and kosher butcher shops in many of their supermarkets, but not in Montana.
