Let's face it, it's too late for most of us. We're doomed to a life sentence of sensible shoes. But it's not too late to rise up and reject this mean-spirited attempt to rob youth of its God-given right to be ridiculous. Do it for pants the size of Rhode Island, surgically-attached baseball caps, and jewelry-studded appendages yearning to be free. Do it for THE KIDS!
