It was the only thing worn different

I wanted to be comfortable and well-enough dressed to be respectful of the hosts, yet different enough for most folks to guess by that one element, why I'm wearing foil on my hat.

Even younger folks who never heard the phase, quickly get what it means and laugh right along. I'm still having fun telling folks about it today, without having to wear the aluminum.

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
