Focusing on the lesser problems with American society - More girls push for modest fashion: "During a recent shopping trip to Nordstrom, 11-year-old Ella Gunderson became frustrated with all the low-cut hip-huggers and skintight tops.
So she wrote to the Seattle-based chain's executives.
'I see all of these girls who walk around with pants that show their belly button and underwear,' she wrote. 'Your clearks (sic) sugjest (sic) that there is only one look. If that is true, then girls are suppost (sic) to walk around half naked.' "

Sure, modern styles can at times be offensive. But what's more offensive is the fact that an 11 year-old can't spell "clerks," "suggest," or "supposed." This girl is most likely in 6th grade, and she's can't spell these simple words? Maybe her parents should be spending less time with her Nordstrom and more time in front of a book.
