All Hats Are Silly Redux

All hats are silly. There is no such thing as a serious hat. I've pointed this out before. So one has to wonder:

...why this, but then absolutely no tiara or galeros??

I can only agree with you, why does the Pope wear this hat - of no sacral nor papal symbolism whatosever - and not the tiara, which does have historical background, sacral meaning and papal symbolism? Either the wearing of headgear has acquired a new meaning, which we are not aware of, or the Pope has already gone mad, like his predecessor.

@Albertus:

He's attempting to identify WITH the common man through the wearing of that particular hat.

Would you go to an impoverished nation with their particular history with The Church decked out to the nines ?
