Green Day, Saggy Pants and Private Business


As a fan of Green Day, I read with amusement that its front man, Billie Joe Armstrong, says he was kicked off of a Southwest Airlines flight Thursday night for wearing his pants too low. He reported this via Twitter, saying, “Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low! What the f***? No joke!” I suspect that the initial range of reactions will be “about time” to “”he should sue them.” This would be funny except that a similar story indicated that a University of New Mexico football player was kicked off an U.S. Airways flight because his pajama bottoms (yes, I said pajama bottoms) were below his knees. He denied this and is now intending to sue.
