Decorum: a Historic Senate Dress Code
“The US Senate has passed a resolution formalizing business attire as the proper dress code for the floor of the chamber . . .” I have quoted the opening sentence of this article.

This going on in Congress at a time, as Daniel Henninger notes in the WSJ, “most people don’t even want to vote for the two major parties’ presumed presidential candidates.”
Today’s senators, Joe Epstein notes, also in the WSJ, “need all the dignity they can marshal, and dressing down can only subtract from what they have left.”
