Great line...

Christopher Chester, reporting for The Associated Press from Baghdad, filed a story on the unusual snowfall. At the end, and maybe let through by a friendly editor:
For a couple of hours anyway, a city where mortar shells routinely zoom across the Tigris River to the Green Zone became united as one big White Zone. There were no reports of bloodshed during the snowstorm. The snow showed no favoritism as it dusted neighborhoods Shiite and Sunni alike, faintly falling (with apologies to James Joyce) upon all the living and the dead.

Nice :)
