The recently returned Polish emigre was frustrated at the lack of snow in his yard and had learned during his stay in America that money could buy anything. So he called a trucking company and asked it to deliver snow from the Tatra Mountains so his children could build snowmen in still-green Warsaw. The trucking company employee was uncertain. "OK, I'll call your competitor," the businessman threatened. No, no, came the reply over the phone, they would deliver the snow immediately. Gotcha!

Iraqi insurgents Thursday released grisly video showing the beheading and execution-style shooting of 11 Iraqi soldiers, who the group said were abducted south of Baghdad this week as revenge for "guarding crusader American troops." Another video released by a different group showed the latest foreigner to be kidnapped: a Polish woman threatened by masked insurgents holding a pistol to her head. The group demanded that Poland withdraw its troops from Iraq in exchange for the hostage's life.
