In an emergency the tie can be dipped into water and be used as a damp cloth.

The extent that our major media companies here in the U.S. have become nothing more than shills for the government astounds me.

I grew up in D.C. reading the Washington Post. I no longer recognize this paper.

I do not own a tie. I am clearly innocent of all wrongdoing.

Back in '98, my employer was on the Board of Opera San Jose and as a result I was their webmaster.

One year, for reasons that escape me, I had to attend Operafest. Now, a few of you have met me. For the rest, I am not of the physical architecture you might expect to meet at Operafest. So a few hours before the event, it was pointed out to me that I'd need a tie.

Dammit.

So I went home to put on my GOOD leathers and I went door to door asking if I might borrow a tie. This gambit turned out to be successful, and I acquired that afternoon a navy blue knit tie about a foot and a half too short.

Alas, I don't know where this tie ended up, but I was somewhat fond of the way, when tied, it rested on top of my belly like bib.

Ties are also protection against splattering butter when you are eating lobster.
