ake heed, young people of Laurel, Miss. Law enforcement is ready to fight the scourge in your town: saggy pants. The police department is set to adorn the town with 50 signs that read, "Pull up your pants. No one wants to see your underwear," with a pic of a young man sauntering down the street sans belt, WDAM reports.

The ACLU will get involved and sue to have the signs removed:

Due to racism.

No. It's "ageism" in reverse. Only this time it's young people being "discriminated" against.

A lot of people wear things I wouldn't wear. Fortunately, I'm not so self-absorbed that it upsets me.

And I'm certainly not so unhinged that I think the government needs to get involved. Ever notice that those whining loudest about the way people wear clothes are mostly the same crowd that never stops whining about 'big government'?

On a side note... Mississippi? Really? The state that's dead last in... well, just about everything. Income, education, health care, employment, and so forth? Maybe if they could focus on something other than how people wear their pants and which Confederate general to name a street for next, they could claw their way out of the national cellar...

How can one recognize good taste without displays of bad taste for contrast?


Besides, being totally a matter of choice, hair and clothing styles are perfectly legitimate targets for ridicule, keeping in mind that the whole thing is based on personal opinion, and is pretty much inconsequential.
