Scary daytime viewing from Montana’s KRTV:
Someone apparently hacked into the Emergency Alert System and announced on KRTV and the CW that “dead bodies are rising from their graves” in several Montana counties. This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency. Our engineers are investigating to determine what happened and if it affected other media outlets.

Christine Roberts writes in the New York Daily News:
A former organizer for the Ku Klux Klan announced Wednesday that he will run as a Republican for Montana’s U.S. House seat.
John Abarr, 41, says he wants to run in response to the election of the America’s first black President in effort to “save the white race.”
“I am running to draw attention to the fact that white people are becoming a minority and losing our political power and way of life,” he said.
Abarr is running on a platform of legalizing marijuana, increasing mental health programs, keeping abortion legal and abolishing the death penalty.
So reports the AP Via Yahoo News:
LINCOLN, Mont.— A 1.4-acre parcel of land in western Montana that was once owned by Unabomber Ted Kaczynski is on the market for $69,500.
The listing — by John Pistelak Realty of Lincoln — offers potential buyers a chance to own a piece of “infamous U.S. history.”
“This is a one of a kind property and is obviously very secluded,” the listing says. It doesn’t say who owns the property.
The forested land, which had been listed at $154,500, does not have electricity or running water. Photos posted with the online listing show tall trees, chain-link fences topped by barbed wire and a tree with “FBI” carved into it, though it’s not clear why. Pistelak said Friday he couldn’t immediately comment on the listing, and he didn’t return phone messages on Sunday.
