Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Good News

First, Aryan Nations is moving from our nice Blue state to be nearer Westboro Baptist Church. Yup, it made the papers:
KANSAS CITY, Kan. - A white supremacist and anti-Semitic group that had been operating out of Pennsylvania says it has shifted its base to Kansas.

One of its leaders, August B. Kreis III, of Sebring, Florida, told The Kansas City Star that the Aryan Nations organization had chosen Kansas City, Kan., as a new headquarters because of its central location. He said that its national director, Charles J. Juba, had recently relocated to the Kansas City metropolitan area from Pennsylvania, aiming to enlist new members.

The organization now lists its address as a post office box in Kansas City, Kan., replacing an earlier listing in Leola, Pa. - a small town just east of Lancaster. . .

In 2002, Juba, Kreis and a third man joined together to replace Aryan Nations founder Richard Butler, whose health was declining. After Butler's death in 2004, Kreis took over a faction of the group he called the "true Aryan Nations." Another faction calling itself the real Aryan Nations moved to Alabama last year.

Indeed, the other faction of the group moved to the Red state of Alabama last year. Oh, I might be a little tongue in cheek here, but these folks are truly bad and I really do feel safer with them nearly a thousand miles away.

The other good news? The Eagles re-signed Jeremiah Trotter! Woohoo!

Hey, it's a Friday, a guy's got to find stuff to celebrate, doesn't he?
