A man and his wife were sitting in the living room and he said to her, "Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."
His wife got up, unplugged the TV and threw out all of his beer.

BAGHDAD (AP) _ Iraqi officials say they have approved plans to build a five-star hotel in the Baghdad's heavily guarded Green Zone.
Iraq's National Investment Commission says land for the project is being leased by the Summit Global Group, a U.S.-based investment company.
Robert Kelley, head of Summit Global, says the 300-room hotel will cost $100 million. He says American and Iraqi investors are involved in the project, but he did not name them.
At a groundbreaking ceremony on Saturday, Kelley said construction would begin soon, but he did not specify a date.Iraqi government offices and American diplomatic and military facilities are inside the Green Zone, also known as the International Zone.

All our suites have the latest in comforts for our guests: blastproof windows, Kevlar bathrobes and a mini-bar with enough top shelf rations to outlast a 5 day siege.
Come! Join us for cocktails in the famous Bunker Room.
The Suites of Green Zone – another “W” hotel.
