My name is Balaguer and I was the President of the Dominican Republic three different times during my time on Earth.
Some people say when I wore a hat, nothing bad happened weather-wise. But, when I didn't, then there was always a disaster or hurricane or something.
Just like this. I had a heart attack at some point, and I didn't have a hat on, and whenever I didn't have a hat on and had the heart attack, a hurricane passed by the Dominican Republic. So, maybe it is the hat of mine.
When I do have my hat on, it is like money flying down from heaven onto us because nothing was ever happening, just good things.
When I died in 2002, a big hurricane hit after that and destroyed part of the Dominican Republic. When it hit, people turned to the myth and legend of the hat and blamed it on that. Pretty funny.
So, if the myth and legend are true, then I think that I did my job there in the DR. It was fun, but I'll just let those people think what they want, and let the myth remain a mystery.
