Bowties are "in" among younger, hipster-ish folk these days. I wear bowties about 30% of the time when I teach. (And I am a lady.)

I passed a man in a three-piece suit, boater hat (yes, I had to look up the name of that particular style), and bow tie, riding a bicycle on campus today. I wouldn't say he looked cool (except in the sense that Bill Nye is cool), but he did look pretty sharp.

Bow ties have also been worn to support marriage equality. See http://tietheknot.org/.

You must be your own snow, Dr_Alcott.  You must lift, and sparkle, and then melt away.

I love everyone here!
