Ex-Mayor Breaks Pledge, Wears Long Pants

Mayor Eddie Favre of Bay St. Louis, Miss., lost everything in Hurricane Katrina but the clothes he was wearing. Favre vowed to wear only Bermuda shorts until his town recovered. In 2009, he finished his time as mayor in shorts. The Sun Herald reports Favre wore khaki pants recently to testifying at a trial. He said he didn't want to offend the judge.
