Bizarre meeting: KKK & NAACP

Denver (AP) - This may be a first: The Ku Klux Klan meets with the NAACP.

Participants say it happened this past Saturday at a hotel in Casper, Wyoming. The secret meeting was held under tight security, and it was between John Abarr, a KKK organizer from Great Falls, Mont., and Jimmy Simmons, president of the Casper NAACP, who wanted to discuss race relations.

The Casper Star-Tribune says the meeting ended with the KKK representative paying a $30 fee to join the civil rights organization, and a $20 donation. He says it's so he could get the group's newsletters.
