This is very off topic! Not only would I like to ask you to follow the link
but please send this back to the people who keep ask for help getting
"their" money out of Nigeria or Niger.
Subject: Off topic
> Last Friday, the Oprah show covered a story of a
> Nigerian woman, Amina Lawal, who has been sentenced
> to death by stoning because she had a baby out of
> wedlock. She has tried to appeal the decision but
> has been unsuccessful, thus far. The head of Nigeria
> disagrees with the stoning but has so far done
> nothing--partly because of the fear of not being
> re-elected. I should also note that the father of
> the baby denied fathering the child and, hence, has
> escaped any form of punishment. Amina Lawal's
> stoning will occur as soon as she is finished nursing
> her child. She will be buried up to her neck in
> dirt and townsmen will throw stones at her head until
> they kill her -- which has been known to take hours.
> I send out a plea to all recieving this e-mail to
> join me and many others to help prevent this horrific
> and inhumane event from occuring.
> All you have to do is visit the Oprah website:
