We have the little clips on the back of our pews. Of course the pews have been there for about 80 years. Removed and partly refinished when the floor was redone but the same massive oak pews from the early 20thc.
Ya PJ - about as stupid as skin cancer. Try going to the docter every six months to have things cut off your head! More hats = less skin cancer.
You expected something unweird from NPR?
AGITATE/EDUCATE/ORGANIZE - old commie slogan.
Was that from the movie reviews by the guys in silouhette from behind, Tom Servo...somebody else and somebody else ? What IS the name of that hilarious program?
I could never stand wearing a hat or ballcap. ....That is the only bitch I had while in the military. Until an Phillipino Ranger gave me an Aussie style hat, which was never questioned by my superiors.
Pictures like that are always cool. I always notice how skinny everyone is.
100 years later: the hats may be gone but the truth remains: those who most loudly promote the cause of “Labor” are those least likely to actually desire work.
Ha Ha! You got THAT right!
Mystery Science Theater 3000 ... MST3000.
THANK YOU, thank you, thank you. I will see if it is on the intra webby thing and pee my pants all day!
O’Rourke you are an a$$!
I’m walking quite often in all kinds of good and bad weather. My hat of choice is a traditional western hat, natural fur or treated to resist rain and snow.
The wide brim also blocks the sun from my eyes and gives some shade.
Indoors the brim redirects that dang overhead air conditioning that never turns off. It’s relief from opresdive overhead lighting as well.
It’s not a matter of style O’Rourke you boob. It’s a matter of form following function.
What amazes me more is that all men wore suits at all times. I hate wearing suits, because they’re expensive, uncomfortable, and restricting. And what the hell is a tie?!
Jack Kennedy certainly helped advance the trend, but I think it was a part of a broader cultural phenomenon informed by intellectual alienation and radical egalitarianism beginning in the early '60s, in which "youth" was revered over old age (and wisdom).
It was greatly hastened by the folk music movement, the Beatles' arrival in America and by the rapid rise of the same dope-smoking lefty Peace Creeps who now (having become old people themselves, but absent any acquired wisdom) run the government and the schools, and also dominate the entertainment industry.
You're welcome. Click on the link i provided you to get started. You may want to wear rubber shorts. ;-)
Exactly. JFK represented the new cool back then.
At the end of the article, the author says his father wanted to blame “someone” (for the loss of business).
In reality his father wanted to blame a REPUBLICAN. So had to come up with contrived and convoluted rationalizations to preserve the status (in his own eyes) of St. Jack the Great.
