Dressing for Success

Prosecutors can't get away with wearing jeans, while Public Defenders can sport "pink hair, dreadlocks or tattoos."

I need to introduce these guys to my old boss, a veteran prosecutor who sports an earing, in a small, conservative Virginia town, no less.

But fortunately flip-flops are out of the question for everybody. At least for now.

HT: Skelly.

Around here it's all about shaving your head. I let mine grow out during the winter, but I may have to follow the office trend again this summer and get rid of it all again.

That also describes a former mayor of the Town of Columbia, VA, that I once knew ... back before he had kids and had to start setting a good example.
