Dear George Will,

In reference to your recent article in the Washington Post, Demon Denim, I have to set you straight.  I took particular notice of your words, “Denim is the clerical vestment for the priesthood of all believers in democracy’s catechism of leveling–thou shalt not dress better than society’s most slovenly.”

George, have you ever worked in a field?  Have you burned or welded steel?  Climbed a pole?  Changed a tire?  Fixed the brakes or anything else on any type of vehicle?  Worked with hazardous materials?  Worked in the woods, cutting trees or brush?  Sown a garden?  Worked with cattle or horses or dairy cows or any livestock at all?  Built a shed, a pole barn, a garage, a house, a mansion?  Painted walls, ceilings or anything?

All I own is jeans because of the wear they will get, and the economical price.  It’s not that I don’t care about my appearance, it is that I am conservative, practical, no-nonsense.

You are, I think, trying to call attention to people who wear jeans, but can obviously afford to dress better.  Instead you insulted a huge amount of us hard working rednecks.

Slovenly?  Thanks George.  Now at least I know where you’re coming from.
