The ties that bind: Hillary's neck on the line?

Well, I've been quite busy wasting my time on other things lately, but I thought you all would enjoy this bit of headline insight sent in by CJ barber/Unknown Knowns reader Carol Hill...

Some of you may remember (I didn't) that back during the Lewinsky scandal/affair/whatever, President Clinton's choice in ties came under intense scrutiny. Essentially, it was suspected by some that Clinton's choice to wear a gold tie at an August 6, 1998 press conference, was not a fashion statement, but a way of sending some secret message to his former fling. President Clinton laughed off the allegations at the time, and it would appear that we now know why - Carol found this headline last week on Yahoo News:

[Hillary] Clinton Quiet About Past Wal-Mart Ties

Apparently, the real controversy behind the gold tie was not some secret message to Ms. Lewinsky, but rather the fact that it was cheap, second-rate, and probably sweatshop-manufactured.

Scandalous.

While you may think that this whole tie thing is unimportant in the grand scheme of things, let me assure you - it's knot.
