    Dan Rather, Peter Jennings, Cokie Roberts, and a tough old

    U.S.Marine Sergeant were all captured by terrorists in Iraq. The leader of

    before they were beheaded.

    Dan Rather said, "Well, I'm a Texan; so I'd like one last bowl

    full of hot spicy chili." The leader nodded to an underling who left and

    returned with the chili. Rather ate it all and said, "Now I can die


    Peter Jennings said, "I am Canadian, so I'd like to hear the song

    "O Canada" one last time." The leader nodded to a terrorist who had
