Purple is the color of creativity and eccentricity, but darned if I can think of anything interesting to say about it. It's allegedly the favorite color of adolescent girls, and I have nothing to say about that, either. The L.A. Lakers uniform is purple, but, alas, they're probably not going to do well this season. What I will say is this:
Roses are red,
Violets are purple, damn it, not blue!
