Because apparently he has nothing better to do, Missouri Senator Ryan McKenna added an amendment to a bill on how his state should regulate educational funding that would ban citizens over the age of eight from wearing seersucker suits. Eh? The main purpose of Senate Bill 437 may be to provide structure to "the way the state funds public institutions of higher education," but McKenna saw it as an opportunity to make his personal sartorial predilections known. "Any person living in this state aged eight and under may wear seersucker suits at their leisure. Any person over the age of eight living in this state may not wear seersucker suits because adults look ridiculous in seersucker suits," the politician expounded in his handwritten proposal to alter the bill. What this has to do with the government's fiscal relationship with its colleges is beyond us, but it does indicate that senator sure must be bored at work.
