|Bill Clinton fell deathly ill while being transported home from his Africa trip. Apparently he picked up a strange, life-threatening disease in one of the villages. He was rushed to Bethesda Naval Hospital for a complicated
operation. He went under the knife in the early morning, and when he awoke, he saw that the curtains were closed around him and it was dark.|
"Why are the curtains closed?" the President asked the Secret Service agent sitting beside his bed, "Is it night already?"
"No, Sir," the agent said, "There is a huge fire across the street and we didn`t want you waking up and looking out the window and thinking that the operation was unsuccessful."
