In Honor of Aretha Franklin’s Inauguration Hat

At least in my mind, Aretha Franklin stole the show on Tuesday. It’s hard to top her singing My Country, ‘Tis of Thee — the beauty of the voice, the obvious poignant symbolism of the moment, and then her hat. Yes, the hat that has captured the public imagination. Just days later, we have a Facebook group dedicated to her headwear, and now on Flickr a series of photos that creatively superimpose the Franklin hat on other celebrities, Colbert and Bullwinkle included.
