Should good taste be legislated?
State Rep. Joe Towns of Memphis thinks so. He's proposing a state law and $200 fine for baggy pants.
"It's an anti-crack bill," he told WTVF-Nashville.
If underwear or buttocks show, you're in trouble -- at least, if the law passes.
Others have seen the possibility of racial profiling.
Towns may have the best of intentions, butt -- whoops, but -- law officers have more important things to do than serve as fashion police.
