Dear CSU:

One afternoon last month, I was walking down Nevada Avenue where I encountered a textbook case of plumber's butt above the jeans of one of your hard-hatted technicians.

I won't repulse you with unnecessary detail; suffice it to say that body hair and blemishes were involved. After the sort of wince normally reserved for visits to Conoco men's rooms, I continued to my luncheon engagement.

Need I mention that I was no longer hungry?

I'm not denying that plumber's butt, or ass cleavage as it's also known, is something of a blue-collar inevitability. However, it's not something I need to see, especially around lunchtime.

Quick question: Have overalls ever killed anyone? Such a sartorial mandate would kill your crack problem lickety-split.

It's tacky to ask for some sort of visual reparation, so I'll just leave that to your discretion.

Sincerely,

Kenneth Cleaver
