Saving the Pope's Hat
- Tuesday, July 15, 2003
Secret service guys start to launch a boat, but Bush waves them off, saying "Wait, wait. I'll take care of this. Don't worry."
Bush then steps off the yacht onto the surface of the water and walks out to the Holy Father's little hat, bends over and picks it up, then walks back to the yacht and climbs aboard. He hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence.
The next morning, the New York Times carries a story, with front page photos, of the event. The banner headline is "Bush Can't Swim."
