A term used to describe those who are aware of what is 'in', and what is 'out'.
Originally meant to apply to clothes, hair, makeup: the way people appeared.
Now it can be applied to the way people think. Politics obviously follows fashion trends. Just watch what Mike Harris and his Tory government import next from the United States. Or everything that Tom Long, Mike Harris' Svengali, says in his attempt to win the leadership of the Canadian Alliance Party, born Reform.
The eagle has landed in Canada.
