Item: The Army and other experts have just announced that a fluorescent Blaze Orange is the safest color to wear in the bush during hunting season. It will protect the wearer from hunters but not from the cheerful nitwits who have been shooting red-hatted and yellow-hatted hunters.

We decry the night-shooting rifle scope and we regret the necessity (it is a necessity) for Blaze Orange. What we need more than the right color, however, is education and a licensing test to protect both game and hunters from the lazy, lethal unhunters who have been invited into the woods and marshes. Hunting is a legitimate sport. It must not be allowed to degenerate into a motorized industry with sadistic overtones.
