• White supremacists are making themselves known in a small town in Montana with typically disgusting behavior.

• It’s so cold, tiny ghosts are appearing in area yards!

What You Want to Know

• Zsa Zsa Gabor’s obituary is quite a read. Seriously, take the time.

• The lifelong Raiders fans in my family are looking at all the bandwagoners like, “Uh huh.”
