Tangled Up in Blue

I had previously blogged about the New Orleans Police Department decision to change uniform shirt colors from the long standing powder blue to dark black. 

The change was made in part to wipe away the memory of Katrina day events. I questioned the wisdom of placing officers on the hot streets of New Orleans in that dark color!

Well , today , it was announced in the newspaper that NOPD is going back to its original powder blue! Why? In part because the black shirts, besides looking paramilitary, were found to be too hot!
