Samantha Pawlucy had accused her geometry teacher of humiliating her for wearing the shirt, and stayed out of school after saying she learned students had made threats against her.

DALLAS - Airlines give many reasons for refusing to let you board, but none stir as much debate as this: How you're dressed. A woman flying from Las Vegas on Southwest in the spring says she was confronted by an airline employee for showing too much cleavage. In a recent case, an American Airlines pilot lectured a passenger because her T-shirt bore a four-letter expletive. She was allowed to keep flying after draping a shawl over the shirt. Both women told their stories to sympathetic bloggers, and the debate over what you can wear in the air went viral.

This year's No. 1 and No. 2 overall picks will face off Saturday when the Colts face the Redskins in Washington. "People will make a buck off everything," Redskins defensive end Stephen Bowen said.

THE WILDWOOD boardwalk has always had a dash of weird and plenty of cheese, but some think that the T-shirt shops there have turned weird and cheesy into crude and sleazy.

Parents may wonder what "Swag" is (or "Swagg," as it's spelled on one boardwalk tank), while young kids wonder what the funny symbols are in that same "F**K Your Swagg" top. The worst material is usually inside the store, such as a "blumpkin" shirt.
