Westboro nutters rule

You might think the so-called Reverend Fred Phelps and his gang of Westboro Baptist nutters are a bit of fun -- an eccentric side of America's rich tapestry to be remarked before one moves on.

Think again. This article contains evidence that they're not considered nutters by everyone: some of them have positions of influence and importance.

Still, it's in Kansas, so that's okay. Apart from my reader in Wichita, most of us are far-distant from Kansas in miles and in temperament. And luckily, nobody from Kansas, in particular someone who had been fucked-up under the Phelps clan influence, could ever find their way to another state, such as for instance (Muskegon) MI, (Irvine) CA or (Littleton) CO.

Nice to know the country's most dangerous people are in such erm, safe hands.
