Ex-Mayor Breaks Pledge, Wears Long Pants
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Mayor Eddie Favre of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, lost everything in Hurricane Katrina - everything but his clothes, including a pair of Bermuda shorts. He vowed to wear only shorts until his town recovered. In 2006, Favre met President George W. Bush in shorts. In 2009, he finished his time as mayor, in shorts. Now the�Sun Herald�reports that Favre wore khaki pants. He was testifying at a trial, didn't want to offend the judge.
