I just received a bumper sticker from ecoAmerica declaring that “Green is Red White & Blue.”

But wait, no, green is the new black.

No, green is the new red.

Green is the new blue.

Gold.

White.

Pink.

Oatmeal?

I’m not sure what my point is. Maybe it’s, damn people, get a new cliche (or is that an oxymoron?) Or maybe it’s, I eagerly await the day when green is green. Not new. No need to be clever. Just infused in everything to the point that it’s not even recognizable as green.

A bit of late-Friday philosophy.
