"First, it's jaywalking. Next, the ascots. And then hard drugs."

Until now, getting weird in Milwaukee was wearing a trench coat, a bow-tie and tassled loafers--all on the same day. But some guys just push the envelope. They learn, the hard way, that there's just no room for sartorial anarchy in the good German mind. The ABA Journal's Daily News notes that this really happened in Milwaukee, a German-American city which, just like WAC?'s beloved Cincinnati, is not known for anything too different or "way out" in white collar life: "Judge Fit to Be Tied Over Ascot-Wearing Lawyer". Brilliant header, color choice.

Man, can I relate! Back in '69, I hit the city and I lost my band, I saw the needle take another man.
