Some residents in the hometown of former President Jimmy Carter are calling for a crackdown on young people wearing low-slung baggy trousers and shorts that expose their underwear and sometimes even more.
Members of the Plains City Council say they plan to ask town’s attorney to determine if they have the authority to regulate the fad known as “sagging,” which offends some of the town’s 600 residents and could turn off some of the 68,000 tourists who visit this rural southwest Georgia farm town each year to learn about the nation’s 39th president.
“Sagging” shouldn’t be confused with how my generation wore our pants during the Carter presidency, which was known as “Malaising.”
Bring in Jimmy toÃ‚Â rid PlainsÃ‚Â of their droopy drawered minions. It would be a good test. If he can’t even get a few mallÃ‚Â punks to pull up theirÃ‚Â pants, how is he going to helpÃ‚Â fix the Middle East? And if that doesn’t work, turn loose the attack bunny.
