SHENANDOAH, Pa.

Of all the stories this tough little coal town has to tell — stories of industrial might, bloody strikes, black lungs; stories of Friday night football, Saturday night drinking, Sunday morning praying; and now, the story of a sensational murder — its favorite tale unfolds on a Saturday every August.

I went to Shenandoah this weekend to see the anti-“illegal” immigrant rally and attend the Unity Festival there. Here the post I wrote about this trip.
