We should all be as lucky as Cocoa, FL, a place that's such a problem-free paradise that they have time for this nonsense:
COCOA — The city council passed a saggy-pants ordinance Tuesday night, but put off enforcement until Jan. 1.
The ordinance will ban pants or skirts that expose underwear or skin more than 3 inches below the waistline. It will only be enforced on streets, sidewalks and other designated city property.
The first written citation would come with a civil fine of $25, following an initial verbal warning.
Really? They've got nothing better to worry about than this?
Look, I don't like young people either. I find their fads, especially the one targeted by this ordinance (if you're unclear, click on the link for the story, there's a picture representing it very well), obnoxious and distasteful.
But really. Just because I find something obnoxious and distasteful isn't a reason to fine it. It's not public nudity, it's not causing a disturbance, it doesn't cause any harm (except for to the dignity of the wearer). It's merely obnoxious and distasteful.
