Protecting against bad judgment

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY
The Aug. 26 article, "Airlines exercise right to say, 'You can't wear that'" really, really caught my attention. I think the debate over freedom of speech vs. good/poor judgment is what this story is about. I agree with the airlines or restaurants that as private businesses, they have a right to protect certain things.
The issues in the story regarding the F-word on a T-shirt of the one about terrorism, the young man who wore his pants halfway down his butt, certainly show poor judgment, in my opinion. Not only that, it shows a lack of self-respect, as well as a lack of respect for those around the person.
Perhaps airlines should post some sort of dress code; I see no problem with that, the above examples are proof of what is, or is not, acceptable.
