This article reminded me of something. Last week my wife and my father-in-law went with our daughter to buy 'school uniforms'. In this context 'uniform' means literally that: the t-shirts and sweaters have more or less the same shape, but you can buy and wear them in any color you like, as long as they have the school logo on them. Our daughter, who will start first grade on September 1st, chose t-shirts in six or seven different colors ( sweaters will be bought later ). My wife told me that the store is stuck with orange clothes. Apparently even opponents of the disengagement plan are uncomfortable with sending their children to school with what today is considered a political - not a fashion - statement.
