rrwAnn Corcoran’s RRW review for the month of June 2015 is up (in fact, it’s been up for days, I’m tardy in passing it along) and includes the top three posts of the month:
  1. The number one resettlement state in America is Texas (primer part I)
  2. Dead Somali ISIS fighter had ties to Lewiston, Maine
  3. Idaho: Get ready for Somali refugees as county approves huge meatpacking plant near Boise
Lewiston, Maine, brings back memories—the late Sam Francis covered it in 2002, with Abolishing New England: In Lewiston, Maine, They Had a Dream, Too…

Somali clan leaders among the refugees had targeted Lewiston for resettlement, and when Mayor Laurier T. Raymond, asked them to stop, he was denounced for “bigotry.” Now in addition to importing refugees, they’re exporting terrorists.

And Readership at RRW is booming—Ann Corcoran says
Although June wasn’t our biggest month ever (May was), one thing worth noting is that as of the end of June (6 months into the year) we had more readers so far in 2015 than in the whole of 2014.
If you’ve never been to RRW before, a roundup is a good place to start.
