Don't get me wrong, I do believe what you say to be true to a certain extent. But I also see where many tie "respect for decorum" to equal morality by many, and that the decorum becomes the issue rather than the what's under the decorum, so to speak. I guess what I'm trying to say is it goes both ways. The "elder" may put too much emphasis and will not be willing to evolve. The "young" will establish their own identities, but may not grow up...

That may not be clear, but I have a few examples in mind, it would be an interesting thread.

At least they're not wearing three-inch ruffled terrycloth miniskirts with words written on the butt.

How come no one's ever questioned the fact that Bush only has like 3 or 4 ties?

I think some may be showing a little too much cleavage for the white house.

I understand what you are saying. I don't know if it should be tied to morality, but it should be tied to civility.

The biggest problem is that the principles behind such decorum are never taught or explained.

Pffft....during the clinton Admin., that would have gotten you an internship! [/off color comment]

I would not have noticed if it wasn't brought up. I really believe this is the White House's "Smoke and Mirrors" tactic to get around the Rove controversy!

I almost made a comment like except when Clinton's in office, but I thought I'd sit back and wait to see how long it took for someone else to do it...21 minutes!!!
