    OK, I take issue with this. What on earth causes people to believe that a
person who has a Ph.D. but happens to be wearing a pair of Levi's is less
professional than some high school drop out with no qualifications but happens
to wear an Armani suit to the lab every day!
    Anyone who makes a prejudiced assumption like that deserves the quality of
work that comes from a vain self absorbed person. I for one look past the
clothes at the person who wears them and decide upon their professionalism
upon the way they conduct themselves and their abilities.
     David Koresch, Timothy McVeigh and Ted Bundy actually look quite sharp
in 3
piece suits. I personally would rather work with someone sane in Levis.
