Every once in a while, fashion – like art, music, food, children and other aspects of one’s life – goes through an unfortunate phase.
One such phase occurred in the 19th century.
I’m not sure if this fashion tort will ever again inflict its beasty society upon right-thinking members of society.
We cannot, however, become too complacent about this issue.
Our watchword must be, “Ceaseless Vigilance!”
