Gone fishin' in Florida
From the Page 2 mailbag

Apparently, Billy Marlin and First Brother Jeb Bush are closer than anyone could have imagined. Page 2 had some trouble figuring out what's going on here.

So we asked Page 2 readers to provide captions for this photo. Here are the best of what we received:

I don't care if your brother is president. You can't make me eat that crap!
Keith Saurin
Tempe, Ariz.

Billy Marlin is horrified as the Governor takes a heaping serving of seafood newburgh.
Len Skoros
East Meadow, N.Y.

"C'mon, Jeb! Can't you get me into the Lincoln bedroom for just one night? Pleeeeeease?"
Adam Holtz
Mankato, Minn.

Let me know if you guys need me to fix the pennant race too ...
Lowell, Mass.

After previous stadium funding campaign fails, the Marlins send a new lobbyist who can relate to Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on his level.
Scott Kraft
West Palm Beach, Fla.

Overheard: "Don't let this smile on my face fool ya, I voted for Gore."
Vicar Warman
Sarasota, Fla.

"Hey Jeb, do you think anyone knows it's me in here?" -- George W.
Honolulu, Hawaii

Yeah, I know Roger Clinton used to set you up in the Lincoln Bedroom, but the best I can do is a steak burrito.
Rich Desimone
Columbus, Ohio

No kidding. You mean all those years the guy in the Phillie Phanatic suit was really a member of the Secret Service?
Christopher Thelen

"That's the biggest Marlin I've ever seen ... other than Brando, that is."

Once again, Jeb Bush appears to be involved with something fishy down in Florida.

Hey Jeb, can I get a recount on how many napkins you took?
Ram Narayan

"I've counted three times already ... Preston Wilson did strike out 187 times last year, Billy."
Francis Englert
Scotch Plains, N.J.

"... Enough about my family, let's talk about yours. Any relation to Sterling?"
Dan S.
Brooklyn, N.Y.

Jeb Bush and the Marlins have agreed in principle to a trade that would send Katherine Harris and 300 Gore votes to the Marlins in exchange for Preston Wilson and a player to be named later.
Jesse Cazakoff
Stone Ridge, N.Y.

And finally, here is what the actual AP photo caption stated: Gov. Jeb Bush, right, serves up a plate of paella with Billy, the Florida Marlins' mascot, during Dade County Days at the Capitol on Thursday, April 5, 2001, in Tallahassee, Fla. (AP Photo/Phil Coale)
