Real-life GI Joes?

I often wonder about the gentlemen I see wearing camouflage jackets -- not enlisted servicemen, but civilians decked out in camo.

Do they fear being seen? Do they labor under the delusion that others are hunting them? Perhaps Martians would fix their lasers on them if only they could distinguish them from the forest. Maybe they're just trying to blend in. Or, am I uninformed on the latest fashion trend: urban camouflage.

Actually, the jackets are pretty cool. I like to call them "Columbine Letterman's Jackets." I know if I were taking a squeege in the woods, I'd like to do so under the cover of camouflage. But then again, my ass would be the only thing without camouflage. And it would make a swell target for hunters. I guess I'd better hold it until the rest stop down the road.
