Aryans move to Athol

Not that there's ever an appropriate place for the Aryan Nations, but if they're going to insist on calling a North Idaho town home, a place called Athol seems a bit fitting. 

(This is not an affront to the fine people of the tiny town off Highway 95, rather, a nod to the self-deprecating merchandise sold there.)

The racist literature that's been distributed in Coeur d'Alene the last couple of months resurfaced Saturday, but police caught the men doing it and ticketed them for littering.

The ringleader is not Jerald O'Brien but Paul Mullet, who made a reputation as a neo-Nazi in Minnesota. He told me he didn't think O'Brien was doing enough for the Aryan movement and cut ties with him.
