Hats Galore

July 22, 2010

Yesterday marked opening day for the Del Mar horse races. Opening day for the horse races also brings along with it a long-standing tradition for women to wear their custom-made hats. We’re not talking about regular hats but really, really, really fancy hats. Peacocks would have been put to shame.

I saw one woman wearing a hat with a giant horse statue it, doubtless not comfortable at all. If only Veblen were alive today to write about the Del Mar hats and their ceremonial purposes.

    (Sarcasm) I’m so glad that many children die in poverty, so wealthy females can act irregularly fanciful !
