    PAJAMAS in PUBLIC? Nooooooooo!


    I am so sick of seeing people wearing pajama bottoms in public! It looks so lame! This public wearing of pajamas is a true disgrace, it is a very public display of people saying “I’m so lazy I can’t even be bothered to get dressed”. I hate it!


    I have a cozy pair that I love to slip on and lounge around in but I would NEVER think to wear them out to run errands or go to the store. These ugly pajama pants are now being targeted by the Caddo (LA.) Parish Commission.


    "District 3 Commissioner Michael Williams doesn't care to see people in their PJs, at least not at a shopping center, restaurant or anywhere else in public," said a story in a Shreveport newspaper.


    Williams said that after he observed a group of young men at a local Walmart wearing pajama pants that revealed one of the young man's private parts, he decided to go all out for an ordinance that would prohibit wearing pajama pants in public. I second that notion! And motion!


    The city of Shreveport also has a no-sagging law. That town means business!
    In 2011, Shreveport police "reported 31 incidents involving "wearing of pants below the waist in public." The offenders were issued misdemeanor summons, police spokesman Bill Goodin said in the Shreveport story. Now it's time to hand out some summons for "wearing pajamas in public!  Make it a felony please!


    I was just reading an editorial in the Riverside (CA) Press-Enterprise by Linda Chavez. She makes the point that now Obamacare supporters have made a pajama-wearer the face of their new public relations campaign. Pajama Boy is pushing the Prez's health care on Twitter in plaid-clad p.j.s! Chavez suggests that this is proof positive of the "infantilization of our popular culture." I agree.

    I blame college students for starting this trend when they would rather look stupid than take an extra two minutes to find some pants and a  shirt to wear.

    Pajamas in public shout out that the wearer is juvenile. I hate that Obama is using it to connect to 20-somethings to get them to be responsible and sign up for health care.


    I hate that across the U.S.A. pajama wearing in public is no big deal. I am glad to hear that some public schools have banned students from wearing the ugly things as clothing that is detrimental to their education. Maybe you are even a victim of this terrible inclination? It is simple to overcome this shameful affliction right now. Just take those PJ's off! No more looking like a homeless person before you leave your house.


    The time has come to put an end to this undignified habit. Stop wearing your pajamas in public. No one wants to see your fuzzy wuzzy's at the local grocery store. . Put some (real) pants on! Now!
