And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Adults, apparently; what a great example to set for his son and all the rest of us. All that '60s casual has led inevitably to anybody under the age of 40 wearing pajamas in public, and 13-year-old girls dressing like streetwalkers. Ugh.
Gentlemen in the good old days and he should also be wearing a hat. Rob de Witt is correct. Dress codes are nonexistent and slovenly.ReplyDelete
It's proper boating costume. The English have a different suit for everything.ReplyDelete
