Hats: A brief reflection 

I am a life-long hat wearer—in babyhood I donned a puffy bonnet worthy of the Victorians; in adolescence I experimented (unsuccessfully) with a beret worn at a jaunty angle. Now, in adulthood, I've been known to wear anything from a trucker cap to a cloche. Putting on a hat is a transformative act, sometimes bold, sometimes subtle, but one that allows you, for a time, to try on a different persona—and maybe even perspective. That's why I'm proclaiming 2011 the new heyday of the hat! Hope you find one, or more, on the previous pages that suits you.

    When President-elect Trump announced he would, in a few days, force Congress to enact comprehensive health insurance for everyone, poor or rich, that would provide better and cheaper care than they've ever gotten, you had to wonder whether this guy is a miracle worker or a fool.
