Fetterman is a dedicated follower of his own fashion

 (My new American Thinker post)

Maybe Senator John Fetterman doesn't understand or care but he looks horrible.  Is it too much to ask a U.S. senator to dress up to do his work?  It appears that his colleagues have issues with his "fashion."  This is from Fox:

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., is preparing to issue a bipartisan resolution next week that would re-institute the Senate’s dress code, after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., relaxed the rules last weekend.

The resolution would revert the dress code back to requiring senators to don coats, ties or business attire while on the Senate floor.  

Previous expectations like decency and good taste?  Glad to see Senator Manchin talking like this. Is it really proper for a senator to wear sports shorts, a short-sleeved shirt and tennis shoes to talk to a head of state?  In this case, it was the President of Ukraine who visited the Capitol to talk about money, such as I need more money.

Not long ago, having a senator walking around dressed like that would have been unthinkable.  We live in a different time where standards of professionalism and appearance are not accepted anymore.

It reminds me of a boss who called for Casual Friday or no suit and tie for that one day.  Sometime later, he closed the door and I could hear him scream at a fellow employee something like this but I deleted the expletives:  "Young man, it's Casual Friday, not don't shave don't shower come to work in like a slob day."  

Senator Fetterman was elected by the people of Pennsylvania so it's up to them.  Maybe some constituent can close the door and tell him to dress up like a senator.

We remember Ray Charles (1930-2004)


We remember Ray Charles, who was born in Georgia on this day in 1930.     He died in 2004.

In 1962, “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” topped the U.S. pop charts.

Over the years, we've grown accustomed to his style and music.    And nobody sings "American the beautiful" like Charles.

We remember Marcelino Lopez (1943-2001)

Marcelino Lopez was born in Havana, Cuba on this day in 1943. He died in Miami in 2001. In 1965, 21-year old Marcelino was second in the AL Rookie of the Year vote. He won 14, lost 13 and finished the year with a 2.93 ERA. It was a great season for the young Cuban lefthander.

A few years later, Marcelino played with the Orioles and pitched in the post-season. In 1971-72 , he was a bullpen specialist with the Brewers and Indians.  His career ended in 1972 and I’m not sure what he did in the Miami area after baseball.

We remember the Cuban lefty who shared the Los Angeles sports pages with Sandy Koufax in 1965.   He was an exciting story in the early days of the LA Angels.

1957: Hank Aaron HR gives Milwaukee its first NL pennant

From 1954 until 1976, Hank Aaron was one of the best players in baseball.    He was selected to the Hall of Fame in 1982.

In 1957, Aaron led the Braves to the NL pennant.    On this day, he hit the extra inning HR at County Stadium to clinch it.     

The "walk off" was one of the greatest moments in Milwaukee baseball history.   A few weeks later, Milwaukee beat New York in the World Series and it was quite a celebration.
