2day in history
Today is Wednesday, Sept. 8, the 251st day of 2010. There are 114 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 8, 1935, Sen. Huey P. Long, D-La., “The Kingfish” of Louisiana politics, was shot and mortally wounded inside the State Capitol in Baton Rouge; he died two days later at age 42. The assailant was identified as Dr. Carl Weiss, who was gunned down by Long’s bodyguards.

Ten years ago: In a nationally broadcast pep talk from Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va., President Barack Obama challenged the nation’s students to take pride in their education.

Five years ago: Tropical Storm Ophelia strengthened into a hurricane as it stalled 70 miles off the northeast Florida coast. (Ophelia ended up brushing the North Carolina Outer Banks.)

Time for a change in dress code?

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (AP) — A Baton Rouge Metro Council member wants the parish to support a public awareness campaign against men who wear their pants so low that their boxer shorts show. Councilwoman C. Denise Marcelle has a slogan for the campaign: “Low pants, no chance.”

“I hate to see it and I see so much of it in my district,” Marcelle said. “It’s disrespectful to the elderly, to young kids and to women.”

Her resolution, on the agenda for discussion Wednesday, says wearing saggy pants creates negative stereotypes and that “those who wear saggy pants are hurting their chances of becoming employable, educated and productive citizens.”

Marcelle said she’d like to pass a law allowing police to cite and fine people for wearing saggy pants that expose their underwear, but recognizes that constitutional issues prevent such a law.

A public-awareness campaign is the next-best thing to try to get these young men to hitch up their pants, she said.
