Blue and Red

Not much to comment on today.

This election year, much was said of blue states (democratic) and red states (republican). I noticed today while looking at CNN.com and FOXnews.com that CNN's home page is largely blue for it's template. While Fox is primarily red. Just a coincidence I guess.

I sincerly doubt it is a coincidence. Choices of color, and appearence in general, can be very informative. Consider this, at any presidential debate, notice that each candidate wears Red, White and Blue. Usually Blue suit, red tie, and white shirt. Its almost a uniform.

Color has also been used by many political movements in the past to create a sense of recognition and identifiability. The Reds, The Blues, The Greys.
