The Pope is visiting DC and President Bush takes him out for an afternoon
on the Potomac...sailing on the presidential yacht. They're admiring the
sights when, all of a sudden, the Pope's hat (zucchetto) blows off his
head and out into the water. Secret service guys start to launch a boat,
but Bush waves them off, saying "Wait, wait. I'll take care of this. Don't

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 Washington Post carries a story, with front page
photos, of the event. The banner headline is: "Bush Can't Swim."
