Say it ain't so!

Tucker, have you taken leave of your fashion senses?

Read Tucker Carlson's unbelievable April 12, 2006 announcement, "Goodbye, bowtie (Tucker Carlson)". I think the title of this post will take you there. If not, try

I'm speechless.

Astonishing. I always felt a certain kinship with Tucker Carlson: we are both opinionated people from Rhode Island, both similar in age, and we both favor bow ties. I feel as if I have lost a sibling.

Just another example of people in the entertainment business and their lack of respect for their audience. Soon Tucker will be sporting a two day beard because he wants to give his face a break.

Dear Mr Carlson:
I have worn a bow tie nearly every work day for the past fifty-plus years. (now, I'm 71) I never felt I was abusing my neck, and there are good reasons for me, at least, to continue tying that bow under my chin. Let me explain by telling you a story: I am a practicing veterinarian with a career that has taken my from a full service veterinary hospital to slaughterhouses, to the halls of academia. The bow tie identifies me in a unique way. The last day of a year of long and difficult work at a major slaughterhouse, surrounded by carcasses and hard-bitten tough-guy men and women working the line - (who, by the way, I learned to respect and have a certain kinship with) - I came on the floor, as usual, wearing a well-used and abused bow tie as is my habit, when I looked up at the line and every worker on the line was wearing a huge bow tie of one sort or another: a garbage bag bow, big cardboard peckled with majic marker, etc. then, they all cheered. Now, that's respect! I treasure that morning. And, the bow tie continues nearly every day. Thomas F. Nytch, DVM

My husband has been wanting to wear bow ties. I asked him if he really wanted people to identify him in the Tucker Carlson category. Thanks for posting the article. Now that I know Tucker is no longer wearing bow ties, I will take a look through your catalog and place an order! What a wonderful and strange world it is.
