President Bush visits a primary school classroom. They are in the
middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher
asks President Bush if he would like to lead the discussion of the word

Finally, at the back of the room a small boy raises his hand. In a
quiet voice, he says: "If Air Force One carrying you, Mr. President,

would be a 'tragedy'."

"Fantastic!" exclaims President Bush. "That's right. And can you tell
me why that would be a 'tragedy'?"

"Well," says the boy, "because it certainly wouldn't be a 'great loss',
and it probably wouldn't be an 'accident' either."
