'WORST PERSONS': BROOKSVILLE COUNCIL
Keith Olbermann's nightly "Worst Persons in the World" segment on his MSNBC show usually targets conservative commentators such as Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly. On Monday night's broadcast of Countdown, the seat of dishonor belonged to the Brooksville City Council. Olbermann took the council to task for passing a dress code for city employees that he felt went too far into personal space. As detailed Sunday in a St. Petersburg Times story, the new policy dictates that employees use deodorant, keep their tattoos and wounds covered, do not wear spandex or revealing clothing, and wear piercings only in their ears. Oh, and they must wear underwear. Olbermann compared the council to the character Woody Allen played in his 1971 movie Bananas.
