A weeklong Dockers lockout has brought the nation's supply of Dockers to perilously low levels, the President warned earlier today. "The time has come for resolution," Bush said during a speech at St. Louis University. "Those who work in 'Dress Down' environments can no longer afford to go trouserless." He also cited an alarming upswing in the number of people attending weddings and funerals clad only in collared shirts, boxer shorts, socks and shoes. Although the President says he has not yet decided to intervene in the dispute, business leaders around the country are urging him to intercede before Casual Friday.
