The Press and the Arlington School Board.

The Anchoress and Sisu have some commentary on the MSM and veracity. They say it better than I can. I despise and hate liars, and for me much of the media has siddled on into that category. They now knowingly publish fiction and claim that it is objective truth. At least I admit that I'm biased as hell.

The Arlington School Board has its priorities skewed, IMHO. Fire teachers who suck, pay teachers enough to attract competent folks, and try teaching students to THINK, and worry about fiddling with the dress code once you manage that. Because fiddling with the dress code isn't likely to actually cause students to do any better at learning (as Lawdog discusses at length) if nothing else changes.

Having said that, I do think that most fashions for adolescent girls look like they are hookers. They are just imitating club-going fashions for young adults, however. I'm old enough to have the opinion that leaving something to the imagination can be sexier than the trashy-streetwalker appearance. But that takes class and style. It's easier to put on fishnet stockings, a miniskirt, and a 'thing' that is somewhere between a tanktop and bra. Doesn't require much thought, and works to attract a certain breed of guy. If that's what you want to attract, then keep on dressing like a 'working girl'. Just don't be surprised when he treats you like a whore.

Well, Arlington is in a transition phase. They are doing their best to run out of town anyone below a certain income level who isn't a college student. They stole people's homes so that they could give the Dallas Cowboys a new football stadium (and its profits) while the local tax payers foot the bill. They are basically trying to be the Highland Park (ultra-rish Dallas Suburb) of Tarrant County.

But that implies that club fashions make young adults look like hookers!....hm...can't argue with that.
