Curmudgeonly Thoughts on Latest Fads

When I was a kid, if the fashion at the time happened to be baggy jeans there wouldn't have been this sort of nonsense in which you can enjoy pants that show off your boxers without the risk of them slipping down to your ankles. The whole fun of sagging pants is the chance that they may come off while you're running from the cops on an episode of COPS. That's a feature, not a bug.

This is what's wrong with America in a nutshell: wanting your cake and Edith too. It's why the stock market is tanking (the root cause being wanting a big house with low, or no, payments and wanting big government and low taxes).
