Letter To The Editor Leads To Yoga Pant Parade

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene. It all started with a letter to the editor. Alan Sorrentino wrote it in the Barrington Times in Rhode Island. He had become bothered by a trend in women's fashion. Yoga pants belong in the yoga studio, he wrote. What's next, wearing a Speedo to the supermarket? Well, no, actually what happened next was a parade. Hundreds of people in yoga pants streamed past Mr. Sorrentino's home yesterday. There were signs like, peaceful pants party, and, we wear what we want. It's MORNING EDITION.
