New Orleans law enforcement is rolling in it these days. First the declaration that they basically no longer need a warrant to enter your home (and if there is any group of people you want allowed free access to your house it’s the always upstanding and honorable NOPD). Now, there is a push at the State Capital to make it illegal to wear your pants too low. Let’s disregard all civil liberty issues (because you’ve just got to throw up your hands on something like this) and get to the meat of the issue. How has busting slack survived this long? Many fashion trends don’t survive a season, much less a year (particularly in the urban culture), but this bucking of authority has lasted for well over a decade. Think about what has come and gone during that time, wearing clothes backwards, Cross Colors, rugby shirts, sandles with socks, Tommy Hilfiger (admit it already), khaki denim, collarless shirts, etc. The only things to survive these turbulent times are busting slack and The Gap.
