Wendi Murdoch

I woke up this morning to two pieces of related, and interesting, news (news in my context, that is): first, Rebekah Brooks had NOT worn black after all yesterday in Parliament as I thought when I wrote about her on the day, but rather dark blue (my bad); and second, the heroine of the whole event was the woman in pink. Wendi Murdoch, who leapt to her husband’s defense and wacked his would-be “attacker,” is today’s hit of the blogosphere. Why does this matter? It points out the issues, good and bad, with the science of colour when it comes to dress and public appearance.
