Biden's Ash Wednesday Forehead Mistaken For Bruise
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Vice President Biden was shown live on Britain's Sky News when the anchor noticed a dot on his forehead.
Unidentified Woman: She said, What happened to his head? I'm sure that's what everybody's asking at home.
INSKEEP: Kay Burley and a correspondent speculated for some time. Maybe he was injured or maybe...
Ms. KAY BURLEY (Sky News): I now that I am a very bad Catholic. I know now that it is Ash Wednesday and I know that those are ashes on his forehead. I hang my head in shame. I'll be back in just a moment.
INSKEEP: It's MORNING EDITION.
