Yoga pants are possibly the greatest invention of the past century. Yes, I'm even taking into account cars, solar energy, television -- given the choice, I'd probably pick having yoga pants over all of them. Granted, it would make my morning commute 500x harder, but damn will I be comfy as I strut my stuff down the street. However, one Rhode Island man by the name of Alan Sorrentino doesn't seem to agree with me. In a letter to the editor of The Barrington Times, Sorrentino laments how yoga pants are frequently worn by older women and states that "there is something bizarre and disturbing about the appearance they make in public." "Maybe it's the unforgiving perspective they provide, inappropriate for general consumption, TMI, or the specter of someone coping poorly with their weight or advancing age that makes yoga pants so weird in public."
