george is cranky

George Will, unleashing his inner curmudgeon, says that people who wear jeans are immature and are trying to look shabby, and that it's all another symptom of how terribly wrong America is today.

A couple of observations.

Didn't Ronald Reagan like to wear jeans? Ponder THAT, Will!

And besides, they're comfortable.

And styles change.

Will gets a last insult in: "(A confession: The author owns one pair of jeans. Wore them once. Had to. Such was the dress code for former senator Jack Danforth's 70th birthday party, where Jerry Jeff Walker sang his classic "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother." Music for a jeans-wearing crowd.)"

Let me assure you George, many of us jeans-wearing types do NOT want to hear Jerry Jeff Walker. Yuck.
