not standing on ceremony
Hats off to Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov. The man doesn't take offense lightly.
When he arrived in Rome for a state visit, a band was playing at the airport welcoming ceremony, and the Bulgarian flag was flying-- upside down.
Then he met with Pope Benedict XVI, and Vatican TV carried a report, identifying Borisov and his companions as members of a delegation from Macedonia.
Nevertheless his quick visit to Rome was "a big success," Borisov told reporters. "There were no gaffes," he insisted.
