Don Quixote’s Thought for the Day: Image is nothing

That silly American Idol song, Pants on the Ground, actually has a worthwhile message.  All these young men parading around trying to look like ganstas or prison inmates or whatever really are just “Looking’ like a fool with your pants on the ground.” 

It reminded me of a young fellow I saw at a stop light years ago.  He was looking straight into the sun, in obvious distress, trying to see the light by shading his eyes with his hand.  On his head was a baseball cap . . . wait for it . . . backward.  He was so busy making a fashion statement (“I’m an idiot who doesn’t know which way to put my hat on”) he forget that the bill actually serves a purpose.
