A group of picketers passed my wife and me in Washington last week. We didn’t know they were picketers at the time. What caught our eye was a woman wearing a t-shirt that read “RG F****N’ 3!” Her shirt was unedited. Obviously she was a big fan of the Redskins’ star quarterback.
After buying our coffee, we walked back down the same street. By then, the picketers had taken their place at the corner of 12th Street and New York Avenue. Their signs indicated that they were protesting on behalf of a carpenters union.
I know I’m old-fashioned but I thought it was appalling that someone would walk down a public street wearing a profane t-shirt. I thought it even more unusual that the union would allow a hired picketer to wear a shirt that distracts from their message.
