Pull up your pants!
Update: From The News Tribune: Droopy-pants bill dropped in Va. Senate
Finally, common sense prevails.
. . .Virginia lawmakers dropped their droopy-pants bill Thursday after the whole thing became just too embarrassing.
. . .news reports implied that lawmakers were preoccupied with droopy pants.
I hope this is the last of this issue.
Yeah. Like this will be enforced. Sometimes I have to wonder how these people get elected. Oh, yeah, we elect them.
From The News Tribune: Va. bill sets fine for low-riding pants
The state's House of Delegates passed a bill Tuesday authorizing a $50 fine for
anyone who displays his or her underpants in a "lewd or indecent manner."
An interesting note here. I have seen these pants in the stores with an extended top that looks like boxer shorts. Apparently the pants are baggy but do fit properly at the waist. With the extended "boxer" material, it looks like the pants are falling down. It's a ridiculous look either way. The new law is even more ridiculous.
Signing Off. Until next time, I'll see ya on the Blog! drh.
