Telling the world what I've thought since 1973
Notice there is no mention of the fact that a 4-year old is trying to enter a "bar". HA!
Mrs Larry Armstrong, wife of the photographer is a stubborn German-American who knows her rights. So the Armstrongs and their 4-year old daughter Julie, dropping by the Rheinlander restaurant in La Jolla on Saturday, stood their ground when the bartender refused them entrance because Julie wasn't wearing shoes. "It's a state law," the bartender insisted. "Do the shoes have to fit?" Mrs Armstrong asked, "I don't think so," he said. So the Armstrong family retreated to their car. When they reappeared, Julie was shuffling along in her father's 10-D hiking boots. The bartender was glassy-eyed and silent. Julie was not. "This whole thing is dumb," she said.
