Pull Your Pants Up!


Apparently, the leadership of New York State has too much time on their hands.  
Get this.
Eric Adams, a senator from Brooklyn (you know, part of that city on the eastern end of the state that should just fall into the Atlantic Ocean) has launched a campaign against baggy pants.  He is sponsoring billboards that read, "raise your pants, raise your image". 
"My message is, let us not be the ones to make our communities seem foolish," Senator Adams said.  "If we raise our pants, we raise our image." 





I think Adams has cornered the market on foolish already.  Only in NY, the state that never approves a budget on time.  Oh, wait.  I lied.  I think they were on time once that I recall.   
Now, do other countries deal with this idiocy?

I don't understand it myself... the pants thing.

As for the downstate government... I agree. I've been saying for years. we should split the state at Syracuse and become "Western New York" the state. NYC (and Albany) is more of an anchor around our neck than a help.

Every generation has their stupid fashion faux pas. I 'fondly' remember wearing blue plaid elephant bellbottoms in high school. Ugh. But, I really hate seeing those hanging pants. Makes me want to run up behind them and give them a yank.

NYC will never split. They need WNY to support their crazy laws and Medicaid mama's. Grr, makes me want to move.

Hey, I see you graduated from D'YC! Me too! Small world.

Probably true... and i hear their taxes carry a good portion of the state, but I think other states get along without our crushing levels of taxes and such...

really? when and with what?

I don't even know what Tech Writing is. Is that proofreading?

could be... but more layout and graphic design... desktop publishing and such... although I had all of the courses for a Lit or creative writing major as well... figured tech writing would be more marketable.
