Charleston isn’t alone. The Winston-Salem Journal featured the debate over saggy pants on today’s front page.

The young men who shouted at Mattie Young as they passed her apartment yesterday had one message for her: They’re not giving up their sagging pants.

Young, who on Monday proposed that the Winston-Salem City Council ban sagging pants, ignored them. She sat on her porch holding petitions bearing the names of people who support her call for a ban. She told the council that she has collected more than 600 names, and volunteers are coming forth to help her gather more names . They call themselves Citizens Against Sagging.
