Every now and then, I come across items in the news that make me worry about the future of our country.
Here’s one such item: CNNMoney reports that Americans are paying hundreds of dollars for dirty jeans.
According to Nordstrom, a nutty retailer that sells such jeans, they “embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.”
They sell for 425 bucks a pair.
