It's a scarf, people.

The whole Rachel Ray scarf-wearing episode is making me a little crazy. No one owns the idea of scarves and no one owns the colors black and white, including terrorists. Ms. Ray wore a paisley scarf with fringe and the pattern of the scarf was black and white. She did a commercial for Dunkin' Donuts wearing the scarf. Dunkin' Donuts pulled the ad (after it aired for some time). Why didn't they review the ad before they chose to air it? And if there were issues with colors or style, those could have been resolved by the folks at Dunkin' Donuts without making it look as though the scarf was worn for hateful purposes. And now the media is whining at the rest of us about how awful the scarf is. I'd much rather see a scarf around a woman's neck than the belly-baring, bosom-flaunting, derriere-crack-peeking fashions that have been all over the place lately. If you want to make a real political statement, ladies, cover your physical assets (which we still know are there), show us more of your brains and stop dressing like the corner kittens at Hollywood and Vine. Until that happens, I don't care what any of you have to say about fashion statements, political or otherwise.

Quote Of The Moment
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
