George Will denounces denim

Stick a fork in him

I wish I could say I was surprised at George Will’s column in Friday morning’s paper [“A denunciation of discordant denim,” George Will column, Opinion, April 17], but my ability to be surprised by anything he writes is long gone.

It’s not enough that people who think like he does have been trying to tell the rest of us that we should not be governing ourselves and instead should be listening to those who know much better. We all know where that has led us. Now, he is even telling us how we should dress!

My question: Isn’t there some “home” we can send him off to? Clearly his time has passed if ever it was here at all.

Typical Will

What else did we expect from George Will? This guy is unbelievably out of touch. Just last year he wrote that the middle class is shrinking because everyone is getting richer and moving up into the upper class.

— Tim Gilbery, Bothell
