Finally, a Proposed Law I Can Really Get Behind

The fabric of our society is crumbling as we watch, and no one seemed willing to step in and tackle the real problem we face as Americans, until Louisana's Caddo Parish District 3 Commissioner Michael Williams made a bold, possibly unpopular, move to preserve our nation's dignity:

Khiry Tisdem, of Shreveport, has no problem going out in his "Family Guy" Stewie pajama pants.

"I wear my (pajama) pants anywhere," Tisdem said. "I'm an American, and I can wear my clothes anywhere I want. I'm a grown man. I pay my own bills, so I can wear my clothes the way I want. I don't know why it's an issue."

Caddo Parish District 3 Commission Michael Williams said it was an incident at a local Walmart that offended him and some elderly customers that spurred him to push for an ordinance that would prohibit wearing pajama pants in public.

"I saw a group of young men wearing pajama pants and house shoes," he said. "At the part where there should have been underwear," his private parts were showing through the fabric.
