The Catholic Telegraph‘s report on our local congressional delegation’s reaction to Pope Francis’s speech to Congress includes this humorous aside:

“It was kind of interesting to hear a pope talk about Abraham Lincoln,” Rep. Chabot said, laughingly admitting that some of his colleagues misheard the pope. “I had guys there saying, ‘Did he say Doris Day?!’ I said, ‘I mean, I’m sure she was a fine American. I don’t think she’d be one of four Americans for the pope to single out,’” he said. “Although she was from Cincinnati, I think. That would have been nice.”
