Men in White

There seems to something about wearing a white suit that leads men to believe they can do anything, or instill in them that spirit. Maybe the spirit comes first and the suit second. I'm not sure.

From Slate: The enduring mystique of the white suit.

The men are all wearing white sheets
and they're spotless white sheets
and I don't really understand that
They kind of say
Its hot and I don't have to work
I don't really understand how you could do anything
I'd like to see these guys play baseball
