Something’s Skimpy Here — But What?

John Stevenson made a teary good-bye to his comrades on the Fort Worth City Council on Tuesday. No doubt the District 7 representative will miss lots of things about the council experience — including, apparently, the skimpiness of colleague Wendy Davis’ outfits.
In his parting remarks to a council chamber packed with citizens and reporters, Stevenson thanked Davis for her “great capacities and energies” — and also for her “wardrobe of exciting skimpiness.”
Eyebrows raised, and the crowd burst into somewhat disbelieving laughter as Davis sheepishly covered her face. But Stevenson wasn’t done. He went on about the joy of getting to sit between the two “beauteous bookends” in pre-council meetings — Davis and District 4 councilwoman Becky Haskin.
“That’s just John,” Davis said later. “He was just being playful and fun.” Stevenson couldn’t be reached for comment.
Maybe the line would have sounded funnier several decades ago. As it is, it reminded Static of another clothing comment — the one about the emperor who had none.
