How To Lose a Million Dollars

Put it on the internet.

Here's the next million dollar idea: Build a hotel across the street from every hospital in the nation and call it Hotel Precaution. The next time a doctor says he'd like to keep you at the hospital overnight as a precaution, you can opt to stay across the street at The Precaution for half the price and get a free bagel in the morning.

I don't know exactly how much it costs to spend a night in the hospital but I figure half-price is in the neighborhood of $750. Heck, for $750, I'll throw in a free USA Today. For $750, I'd build a sky walk and have a staff of nurses who could push you across on a gurney if you needed midnight medical care.

And for family members of patients who are staying at the hospital or The Precaution, I offer Bedside Manor. You only get yogurt and cold cereal for breakfast but it only costs $150.

I'm telling you, this is it.
