    A Massachusetts restaurant is repealing its “racist” dress code, with the owner apologizing to protesters for not realizing the impact of his policy, according to reports. About 100 demonstrators gathered outside Nathan Bill’s Bar and Restaurant in Springfield to protest a policy that prohibited baggy blue jeans, long white T-shirts, do-rags and baseball caps worn backwards. A picture of the dress code spread across social media, with many criticizing the policy as directed at African Americans. Restaurant owner Robert Grossman met with the Pioneer Valley Project, the city’s NAACP chapter and City Councilor Tim Allen and agreed to end the policy, Masslive reported.

  • Marysville restaurant denies pregnant woman service for wearing crop top

    MARYSVILLE, Wash. - A pregnant woman wearing a crop top says a North Sound restaurant denied her service -- because her baby bump was showing. The server said the restaurant has a "no shoes, no shirt, no service" policy that’s linked with health code regulations and anyone wearing a crop top would have been asked to cover up. But the customer doesn’t buy it. Charisha Gobin says she stopped by "Buzz Inn Steakhouse in Marysville with her family Sunday night, in a black crop top T-shirt and a long skirt. “The waitress/bartender stopped us and said, 'I'm sorry, you can’t...

    What would our founders say if they could see us now? Americans like to believe that the rest of the world looks up to us, but the truth is that the rest of the world is laughing at us. It may be very difficult for us to admit, but the reality is that America has become a nation of slobs. And I am not just talking about being overweight. Today, Americans are physical, mental, emotional, moral, financial and political slobs. We are addicted to entertainment, we are addicted to shopping, we are addicted to food, we are addicted to prescription...

    Crews are working to clean up the damage left behind from the Occupy Miami camp in downtown Miami. The water has been turned back on, and a dozer is hard at work on what once was the Occupy Miami camp. Protesters were evicted the end of last month, but they left behind quite a mess. "All the sod here was dead," said Arturo Vidal, a member of the cleanup crew.

    Rush Limbaugh Agrees With Wisconsin Official: Protesters Are A “Bunch Of Slobs”by Matt Schneider | 4:05 pm, March 2nd, 2011 Wisconsin’s Republican State Senator Glenn Grothman last night appeared on MSNBC and called protesters who stayed over night in the Capitol building “slobs.” Rush Limbaugh agreed with the description and was appalled by the “descent into barbarianism” going on amongst the “union thugs.” Rush, not surprisingly, went a bit further in his description of the “bunch of slobs,” suggesting that despite Democrats and the media wanting the public to think that it is average, hard-working teachers and firefighters protesting, instead...

    Officials in Venice — as well as the handful of actual Italians still living in the lagoon city — have declared themselves fed up with a certain category of tourist: the pot-bellied, bare-chested, food-chomping, trash-spewing hordes that peak from now until autumn. To combat what they see as a scourge, Venice authorities are distributing leaflets and posting posters with a new set of rules. In St. Mark's Square, it is now forbidden to sit or recline under the porticos and on the steps along the Procuratie Nuove and the Ala Napoleonica, the buildings that ring the city's iconic St. Mark's...

Two sagging unmade beds with dingy sheets stand forlornly in opposite corners of the living room.

    On those rare occasions when insurance executive Tara Guizot wears a suit to her Los Angeles office, "people invariably ask me if I'm interviewing for a new job," she said. The trend toward casual dress has gone so far that Matt Smith, a 27-year-old Los Angeles lawyer, is on a quest to establish "Tie Tuesday." He would like to wear a suit to work but knows he'd be ridiculed. Instead, Smith dons a tie every Tuesday and hopes other men in his office will follow. So far, a couple have. "It's just something fun," he said. Forget casual Fridays. In...

    There's a new fad of students -- mostly girls -- wearing pajama bottoms to school, and so far administrators are not making a fuss about it. "Some days you don't want to get dressed up for school. Like when it's raining and cold. You just want to be cozy," said Ben Lomond High School junior Elvia Escalante, 16. School administrators in Ogden, Weber and Davis school districts say the pajamas have been modest and there hasn't been a problem. "There are worse things a kid could wear to school," said Ross Lunceford, principal of Hillcrest Elementary School in Ogden. "There's...

    People who live next to golf courses become accustomed to the occasional errant shot that sends a golf ball flying onto their property and perhaps through a window. But some of the neighbors who live along the LakeRidge Country Club's golf course can testify to a much worse annoyance. It seems a few of the golfers have been uncouth about their personal habits as they make their way around the course

    Letters from the Front News from the battlefield was not always good, but sad mail was better than none Last of a series. By Deangelo McDaniel DAILY Staff Writer With a heavy heart, Col. Columbus Sykes sat near a tree in Aberdeen, Miss., and wrote a letter to his niece and nephew. "You are yet young, very young," he wrote, "one just emerged from his mother's arms; the other an infant, whose age is numbered only by months." Less than a month earlier on Oct. 26, 1864, Sykes had held his brother, Dr. William E. Sykes, in his arms as...

    NEW YORK – They've been part of the American "uniform" for years, worn to casual restaurants, house parties, and some workplaces. But as jeans become more expensive, they are also becoming more ubiquitous, showing up everywhere from Midwestern churches to Broadway shows. Nothing is off limits, it seems. Or is it? Among those who buy high-priced, designer denim or who simply don jeans frequently - there's debate about where it's appropriate to wear them. The tug of war over jeans etiquette is particularly prevalent in New York City. Here, people tend to be more creative about their appearance, and are...
  • Air Marshals Say Dress Code Makes Them Stick Out

    WASHINGTON, July 15 — Beards are out. So are jeans and athletic shoes. Suit coats are in, even on the steamiest summer days. That dress code, imposed by the Department of Homeland Security, makes federal air marshals uneasy — and not just because casual clothes are more comfortable in cramped airline seats. The marshals fear that their appearance makes it easier for terrorists to identify them, according to a professional group representing more than 1,300 air marshals. "If a 12-year-old can pick them out, a trained terrorist has no problem picking them out," said John D. Amat, a spokesman...

    AWENDAW S.C. — Gunshot holes have been found in everything from picnic tables and signs to pine trees, and foresters warn a free public shooting range in the Francis Marion National Forest will be closed unless the vandalism stops. “The range gets horrible abuse. It’s not a public dumping ground,” said Anne Kiser of the U.S. Forest Service. “We’re trying to demonstrate to people that this is a facility for the public, but they’re responsible whether it stays open or we shut it down.” Workers are making repairs at the Twin Ponds rifle range. They are also putting a concrete...

    Although famed musical composer Irving Berlin thought them lovely enough to write a sonnet, nowadays few women are donning Easter bonnets. In fact, you're more apt to see wrinkled khakis and rumpled polo shirts than pressed suits and pastel pumps at church on Sunday. While Easter Sunday has traditionally been the day to show off your new spring finery, America has become a nation that dresses down, and not just on "casual Fridays" in the office.
