I was watching HD-Net World Report last weekend, and they had a story about an election or somthing that was happening somewhere in Africa - I think - can you tell how much I was paying attention??

So anyway, the story turned to how Jimmy Carter was going there to monitor the election and make sure they were fair or whatever. They showed him walking with a few folks through this dirty backwards third world village, if you can call it that. He met up with a lady, presumably from the region, and they walked and talked for a minute. When they pulled back into a wider shot, I couldn't believe what the lady was wearing... a red AMC staff uniform shirt!

Did anyone else see the news piece that I'm talking about?

Could it be that some used shirts were donated to a charity serving that region?

You're positive this wasn't set in Kansas City? [Razz]
