Life Blackbirds Walking in the Dead of Sun

Look at these employees of the Gary Manuel Aveda Institute, crossing the street just now in all black. Since the Gary Manuel Aveda Institute is in the building more or less behind The Stranger’s offices, we see these beauticians-to-be on their smoke breaks all the time. Lots of them smoke. Although none of them were smoking when I saw them today, probably because of the likelihood that they would instantly burst into flames.
How is it beautiful or civilized or even fashionable to wear all black on a day like today? When we’re in the middle of a heat wave, as the cover of the P-I is screaming?
