Many kinds of people wear Newsie hats for a variety of reasons. For most people, the Newsie hat is just the latest fad, the “cool” item of the week, the hat that will be worn today, and buried in the closet the next. But there are other reasons as well, some wear the hat because of a bad hair day, or because of a balding head, still others wear the hat because it means something to them. I am that type of person. I wear my Newsie hat, not because it will make me look “cool” or to cover up some monstrosity on my head, I wear my hat to let the whole world know that I am a Newsies freak.
