Just something to get off my chest.

My worthy observation for today is that I don't approve of police officers coming on duty ill-shaven. Designer stubble may still be considered cool, but not on those charged with upholding the law, and I really wish they were properly washed and shaved when in uniform. I also wish they could be a bit quieter during their many visits to coffee shops. I find the sharp rustle of uniforms, the crackle of radios, the stomp of boots and the rattle of handcuffs, chains and keys most disturbing.

I have to look closely the next time I see a German policeman. I don't know if they're clean-shaven or not. I'd also appreciate that they were. I've never come across one in a German coffee-shop. In fact, I rarely see any policemen in public.

Hope the officers in take your advice. I am amazed that my son with the MBA in finance and marketing wears not one suit to work and goes to work with stubble. Upsets this mother big time, but apparently "everyone in the office looks that way," says he.
