Why do we wear Black

Bernajean Porter, Gail Lovely, David Warlick, and Hall Davidson

Here’s a rather interesting picture taken at the end of the METC conference yesterday.  Most of the attendees had already left and Bernajean and Hall were waiting for the shuttle to the airport.  Gail and I were on our way for dinner, both flying out this morning.  My question is why do we keynoters always wear black.  Rem Jackson once called it the “out of town speaker look.”  I can only speak for me, and, as a keynote speaker, I tend to order lots of pizzas to be delivered to my room, because I’m just too tired to go out.  I find that black reflects less light from my constantly fluctuating bulk.

I’m on my way to Salt Lake City for the UCET conference.  It’s been one of those conferences I’ve been after for many years.  Utah is such a magnificent state and unique in its population.  I’ll also get to match ideas with Kelly Dumont again, which is always a treat for me. It’s certainly going to be an interesting conference for me. They have me presenting just about my entire menu of topics. Hey, just by the book 😉
