From Thongs To Saggy Pants, Louisiana Tries To Establish A Dress Code

What is it with Louisiana?  First it was the State Legislature's attempt to ban thongs that showed above girls' pants.  Now, it's the Cities of Alexandria and Shreveport trying to ban crack.  Not the drug kind; the backside kind.

They'll fine you $100 if your pants are too low and exposing, well, too much. 

There are six cities in Louisiana that passed such an ordinance.  The attempt to ban thongs didn't get very far, and it's likely this attempt to legislate attire won't either.  Beyond the fact that we're not in high school anymore, attempts to regulate dress just don't pass constitutional muster.  The simple solution?

Wait until Mardi Gras if you want to really see some clothes.
