Oh I used to be disgusted
And now I try to be amused.
But since their wings have got rusted,
You know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
But when they told me ’bout their side of the bargain,
That’s when I knew that I could not refuse.
And I won’t get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

I was going to do a happy trails post for Stormin’ Norman, but after reading this only in Ess Eff news report, I had to share it.

A teenage boy escaped while being transported to juvenile hall in San Francisco on Wednesday night, a police spokesman said today.


The teen is black, and was last seen wearing a glittery black tank top and dark acid-wash jeans, according to [SFPD Spokesman] Shyy. He did not know what charges the boy was facing.

Well, I think the Stinque Fashion Police could name some felonies and misdemeanors.

If you’re like me (of course you’re not, darling, that’s just a figure of speech) when you sometimes watch Mitt Romney droning on about some damn thing or other he just made up, you can’t help but wonder what exactly is under all that expensive, badly cut suiting.

And does he dress right?

(There will be a prize for the Stinquer who knows what that means. No google.)

His hoodie killed Trayvon Martin as surely as George Zimmerman did…

No one black, brown or white can honestly tell me that seeing a kid of color with a hood pulled over his head doesn’t generate a certain reaction, sometimes scorn, often menace.

When you see that kid coming your way, unless you specifically recognize him you are thinking ghetto or ghetto wannabe high-style or low-brow wise-ass. Pedestrians cross the street to avoid black or brown hoodie wearers coming their way…

If you dress like a hoodlum eventually some schmuck is going to take you at your word.
