Spe­cial day

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

As an­tic­i­pated, there was plenty of re­ac­tion from read­ers about a new study find­ing that men who wear bow ties are “a lit­tle weird.” A ma­jor­ity of those polled, in fact, said they don’t want a bow-tie wearer “in the neigh­bor­hood, as a friend, or in the fam­ily.”

“The lib­eral elite edi­tors and pub­lish­ers of the Bos­ton Globe have been fa­mously monikered with the term ‘The bowtied bumkissers of Mor­ris­sey Boule­vard’ — Mor­ris­sey Boule­vard be­ing the home ad­dress of the Bos­ton Globe,” notes Ed­die C., who like most of the men weigh­ing in could live with­out bow ties.

But then we opened this sin­cere rather touch­ing note from Denise Noe:

“It’s up­set­ting to see men who wear bow ties per­ceived neg­a­tively. Af­ter all, what does al­most ev­ery man wear on his wed­ding day?”
