_ Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. I simply do not want to hear or read about it. Why should I care what others think about some irrelevant subject?
Case in point: dresses worn to entertainment award ceremonies. I like the fact that women dress up, especially in a town where a track suit has become the favored uniform.
In scanning headlines, I noticed a piece in Time about Golden Globe Red Carpet fashion. On a whim, I clicked on the photos to see a selection and noticed how some idiot had selected the “best” and “worst”. Then, because my wife likes such programs and I wanted to keep her company (I can be nice like that!), I watched the E! repeat broadcast of arrivals to the ceremony. I enjoyed seeing the fashion, however hated the inane banter and foolish questions.
Not surprisingly, I did not agree with Time’s “expert” judgment on “worst”. I liked a few, although a few were dodgy. And, anyone can wear whatever they wish, as long as they feel comfortable physically or emotionally. Of course, many wear only what they are told to wear, but I won’t get into that subject. There is no reason for anyone else to have an opinion (beyond human nature). So, shut up...
