Somerset, Pa.

 The temporary Flight 93 memorial in coal country near Somerset, May 2003. 

n May, the Fashion & Style section of the New York Times tackled whether trucker caps were "in" as a fashion statement. One place where the question of hat hipness seems particularly irrelevant is the Flight 93 crash site, where hundreds of visitors have left their caps in tribute at the makeshift memorial since September 2001. Especially plentiful among them are caps of military units, fire and police departments, and other government institutions.
