    I'm reminded of the old Bill Cosby "Buck-Buck" routine, in which kids from the tough side of town came around to challenge Cos and the gang to the buck-buck championship of the world: "They had their hats on sideways, their pants on backwards - just rebelling against everything."

    And I saw young woman tonight in a ballcap with the bill turned up like Gomer in the Andy Griffith Show. Post-irony irony or something, I guess, I dunno.

    I understand the concept of younger generations putting their own impress on the old folks' threads, thereby enraging us fogies, but it is the impracticality of the fashion that annoys me. Do the kids of the last 20 years just not ever have need to run at spur of the moment or is it no imposition to hold the pants up while they do? (I'm also put in mind of the iconic Facebook-shared photo of the guy at the baseball game, shading his eyes from the sun while wearing his ballcap backward.)

    I guess a National Anti-Idiocy Day is out of the question, even if it were restricted to fashionistidiots.

    I happened to hear a short snatch of Wings' "Silly Love Songs" today - it quickly wore on me 38 years ago, but I like its thumping baseline now.

    However, the song's lyrics suddenly made me hope "Love" was not Paul McCartney's pet name for his Big Willy.

    "Love doesn't come in a minute/Sometimes it doesn't come at all..."

    You'd think the people would have had enough of Paul McCartney.
    I look around me and I see... it isn't so.

    You can quell the rioting quails or quail at the prospect of quelling the quail riot.

    I am constantly amazed at people who loudly discuss personal matters on their cell phone with other people around. You'd think they would at least walk far enough away so as not to broadcast to everyone their business.
