    There was a military coupe in Niger this week 2/17/2010
    Apparently the leader of Niger, had recently changed the constitution, allowing himself
    to be President without any term limits.And there were questions about corruption.

    Jan 29,`13 WASHINGTON (AP) -- Plans to base unarmed American surveillance drones in the African nation of Niger highlight the Obama administration's growing concern about extremist influences in the volatile region. They also raise tough questions about how to contain al-Qaida and other militant groups without committing U.S. ground forces in yet another war.

    While we are on the topic of racism and the Green Hornet are you aware that Bruce Lee was suppose to be the Green Hornet until the last moment when the management decided they could not have a China man as the main character? Bruce Lee was born in Chinatown, San Francisco.

    So those who are curious do not have to look it up. It's a 1965 Chrysler Imperial.
