I really like hoodies, and tend to wear them a fair amount. Full zip hoodies as jackets for cool days, baggy pullovers to lounge in, whatever. They're warm, they're comfy, etc.

It's interesting how the article of clothing has become so central in the Trayvon Martin shooting. Ridiculous statements such as "I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was" are being made, and the hoodie has also become a symbol of support.

I was thinking this morning that I might like to get a hoodie made with block letters on the back saying "DON'T SHOOT ME", "NOT A TARGET", or something similar. Of course, a simple search online shows that plenty of other people have had this idea (and are trying to capitalize on it).

I'm curious as to how much of a spike in sales the large clothing brands or retailers have seen because of this . . .
