Two items that I DIDN'T expect... see in this morning's New York Times were about Basques in Idaho (my emphasis):

...remnants of the Basque culture are evident throughout Idaho, especially in Boise, where roughly 15,000 people of Basque descent still live, the highest concentration outside Europe. The city’s mayor, David H. Bieter, spent part of his youth in the Basque Country and is, perhaps unsurprisingly, the only Basque-speaking mayor in the United States

And the headline:
Trial to Begin for 16 Members of Amish Group Charged in Beard-Cutting Attacks.

The Onion, maybe, but not the Times.
