Anyone remember when the wife stayed in Reno for 6 weeks so she could file for divorce?

The husband was the bread-winner, so he stayed at home at his job. And maybe with his 'sweetie', who was one of the reasons for the divorce.

Nevada had the easiest divorce laws. Of course, only well-off couples could afford to do this.

The trip to/stay in Reno was a frequent plot element in movies and novels, especially mysteries.

SoAfrica killing white farmers? See rightwingwatch on Carlson's story

Long article dated Aug 23 about Canadian and European white supremicist fears of becoming a minority in their country. And the international cooperation between national white supremicist groups.

It mentions particularly articles at the website Africa is a Country. Those are very informative. The website has many articles not even mentioned in the US m$m.

Highly recommend rightwingwatch's analysis and its links. Also the website Africa is a Country.
