Sign of the Apocalypse

Can it be true that young female lawyers actually have to be taught to wear bras and hose to work at a law firm?

Certainly, they should know better. But perhaps the lion's share of the fault belongs to their parents -- who aren't teaching them any better -- and a culture where, too often, "self-expression" is placed at a premium over decorum and appropriateness, when it comes to dress.

Of course you wear a bra to work at a law firm.

Otherwise, it's a law jiggle.

When young ladies wear flip-flops to meet the President in the Oval Office, it's just a sign of the casualization of America.

More like a sign of no respect for anything. There's a time and place for everything and I find it sad that some think casual attire fits any occasion. Usually, the occasion loses something when those in attendance don't act or dress in a manner more suitable. I still have a hard time with those who can't seem to put on a tie or wear a modest dress for Church, as if God was just one of the guys. This is something eddy has no capacity for understanding. That or he wouldn't mind if his guests show up in muddy clothes & without a shower. It's not a matter of being a stuffed shirt or a stick in the mud, but more a matter of knowing what an occasion calls for and acting accordingly. It's called "civilization". It's called "respect". It's called "honor". These are terms that have little value for some thses days.

So much for your commitment to Carol not to insult others. I suspected you were lying (again).

Sorry, Mr. Sensitive. Did I say something that wasn't true?

Besides, I did say restraint would be difficult. Notice I reserve such speech for the likes of you alone, you special Olympian, you.
