What is the difference between the government and the Mafia?

For what fruit is Haitiís currency named?

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Nope - it's the gourd, known in Haiti as gourde. In the early 1800s, the ruler of impoverished northern Haiti declared all gourds state property and had them brought to his treasury to be issued as currency. Eventually, banknotes and coins backed by gold replaced the cumbersome fruit, but gourde has been the name of Haitiís official currency ever since.

Here are some TV firsts:

FIRST FULL-COLOR BROADCAST: On January 1, 1954, NBC made the first nationwide, all-color telecast with its coverage of the Tournament of Roses Parade from Pasadena, California.

FIRST SPIN-OFF: CBSís western series Trackdown begat the bounty hunter drama Wanted: Dead or Alive (starring Steve McQueen) in 1958.

FIRST TOILET ON TV: The very first episode of Leave It to Beaver in 1957 was shelved for a few weeks by network censors because it showed a toilet. (Wally and the Beav tried to keep a baby alligator in the toilet tank.)
