I was perusing my National Parks magazine and they made reference to the fact that policemen used to monitor the height of women’s bathing suits at the DC Tidal Basin Beach. It turns out to be true. Here is a photo from 1922 showing a man enforce the government’s rule that bathing suits could be no more than six inches above the knee.

    First, that is a picture of a golf pro enforcing the dress code imposed by the crotchety Executive Commitee, all men, who do not have wives with legs that can be presented in Jamaica-length shorts. He should be using a scorecard to measure the length from the hem to the kneecap.

    Second, even though we hate government intrusion, what a great job!

    Third, the TSA has adopted a more efficient compliance model, which can measure to the tenth of a centimeter any distance to the top of any patella. I used to prefer profiling, but now I am not so sure, since Rizzo would be picked out every time, unnecessarily delaying the rest of the herd to the gate.

    Next spring your students could stage a reenactment around the solar picnic table.
