Lawyer Puts On His Patriotic Tie One More Time After 2001 Bin Laden Vow
May 6, 2011
A Texas lawyer did not think he would be wearing his patriotic tie for long when he vowed after the Sept. 11 attacks that he would wear the same neckwear every day until Osama bin Laden was captured or killed. Was he ever in for a big surprise. He never counted on the Bush administration being that incompetent.
Now the tie is “frayed, weathered, and held together in part by Velcro,” KTRE.com reports. It stinks and offended people who were near him. So he kept his vow for a little more than six years, but then he received an "official" pardon from the mayor allowing him to retire the tie.
After word of bin Laden’s death, he got the tie from city hall so he could wear it one last time, according to the Lufkin Daily News. “I am wearing it in celebration,” he told the newspaper.
