Put your pants on, Shreveport

A commissioner in Caddo Parish, Louisiana, has about had it with people wearing their pajamas around town. Commissioner Michael Williams is pushing for an ordinance that would ban PJs in public, after he saw unexpected parts of someone wearing low-slung pajamas at the Walmart.

“Pajamas are designed to be worn in the bedroom at night,” Mr. Williams tells the local Shreveport Times.

The people of Shreveport, some of them anyway, see it differently. One man tells the Times he’s an American who pays his bills, so he doesn’t see what the issue should be with PJs in public. Then there’s this mom:

Tracy Carter, also of Shreveport, was out shopping Thursday with her 3-year-old son, Aaron — she in her Valentine’s Day fuzzy pajama pants and Aaron in dinosaur pajamas.”We all wear our pajamas out,” Carter said. “I can get out of the bed and go to the store, and they’re covering everything. I’ve got a 3-year-old, a 5-year-old and a 12-year-old to deal with.”

The Caddo Parish sheriff says the biggest problem with a no-pajamas rule would be defining what exactly counts as pajamas.
