The Palestinian News Agency carries a story this morning about an explosion in Yasser Arafat’s headquarters in Ramallah. I found at least one little tidbit of information intriguing. According to the report:
“The explosion came from the prison inside the compound, which is adjacent President Arafat's office.”
A prison adjacent to his office? Is this considered some sort of executive perk? Back in the 1990s it was a Gulfstream V, but today nothing says, “you've made it” quite like a corner office with an adjoining prison.
If I were Saddam Hussein reading this I'd be on the phone right now getting bids from contractors who could install a gas chamber next to my conference room.
