FLY: The fly has long been considered a bearer of evil or pestilence. In Catholic symbolism the fly is a symbol of sin. It sometimes appears in pictures of the Virgin and Child to convey the idea of sin and redemption. The fly as a bringer of disease was sometimes shown with the goldfinch, a ‘saviour-bird’ against the disease.”
Sounds right to me. Have any of you seen another US President that so attracted flies?
