|Stogie's New Fedora (for Blogging)|
"Would you like to have it?" he asked. I said YOU BET!! I have been wanting a new fedora since my dog chewed up my last one (also a Stetson); however, a new Stetson costs upwards of $100 and I couldn't justify the expenditure in these hard times. However, I have a large head (needed for all those brains) and I wear a 73/8 hat size. I tried on the hat and it was a perfect fit! Sure enough, the tag inside said it was a 73/8.
I think the gift was Larry's way of saying thanks for saving him quite a bit of money over the past few years.
|Stogie's New Fedora (for Blues and Jazz)|
As Robert Stacy McCain or Da Techguy will tell you, a fedora is an absolute must for blogging; we are the new media, the new reporters and must wear a fedora. Matt Drudge renewed this journalistic tradition when he opened the Drudge Report, and it is a good thing. However, for me the fedora will do double duty, since fedoras are also popular with blues and jazz musicians. All I have to do is flip up the front and the fedora converts from a journalistic theme to a jazz theme. Am I cool or what? Don't answer that.
