‘Beauty Queen’ Editor Threatened

Is it Salman Rushdie redux? A Nigerian government official today threatened the life of the newspaper writer who aptly noted ‘Muhammed…might have wanted to marry one of the contestants’.

The author of the death threat is a provincial deputy governor. Is it any wonder the best and brightest flee from places like Nigeria to the U.S.? Where is the central government of Nigeria in this debacle? Can U.S. businesses deal with such an unstable nation? The list of questions is endless, it seems.
