What Ever Became of Respect?

I don't care if you were my best friend, one of my wives, or even the recognized product of my loins. Dress respectfully or stay home. Remember when "Dutch" Reagan died? You know, "the Gipper." Well, I was never a fan of his in life, but I was disgusted with the way some people dressed to go to see him lying in state in the Rotunda. Here is an example:

I'm sure these fine people had no disrespect in mind, but come on. The proper dress for such an ocassion is dark and formal. Not a poly-cotton blend pull-over no matter how patriotic the colors.

And one might think the Europeans would be more sympathetic to this, but Nooo. Not even when the decedant is il Papa, the Pope. Check it out:

Look toward the bottom center of the frame. Bib overalls? Come on! He was the pope, not your old fly-fishin' buddy. And I'm an atheist. You supposedly respected the man's faith.
