Fact of the Day: Detroit Iraq

In 1980 the city of Detroit, Michigan gave Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein the key to the city. The reason was that he gave a considerable contribution to a local church.

Interesting!!! ??????
I believe Detroit has gone backwards in the car industry and is pretty
much a terrible sight to see these days.
Saddam is with his "71 virgins in immortality" or wherever such
people go.
So what happened to the key???
