Out of town….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 11, 2017

I’m leaving for a few days vacation, but I want to take this opportunity to tell the new readers especially, that there are thousands of posts archived here at RRW and you can access them by going to the search window (upper left) and typing in a key word or two.

Take some time and explore the links under the header too, be sure to see the Frequently asked questions.

See categories in the lefthand side bar.  In the right hand side bar you can see what the most read posts of the last few days are and you can see my twitter feed.

As I head out of town, here are a couple of important stories you should look at:

~Not hiding it anymore, Iowa pork plant wants Sioux City to be primary refugee resettlement site so as to supply them with cheap low-skilled refugee laborers, here.

~Thomas More Law Center Challenges Court Order by Federal Judge Prohibiting Criticism of Muslims or Islam, here.

~Idaho: Muslim (refugee?) arrested for lewd conduct with 8-year-old child, here.

~Federal government sides with Somali Muslims at Cargill plant, here.

~Canada setting up refugee border camps as Haitians flood out of NY state, here.

Have a good weekend, be back next week!

And, thanks as always for reading RRW!
