Bring Back Seersucker Thursday.

    1. Petition by

      Adam Shapiro

Seersucker Thursday was a bipartisan effort started by then-Sen. Majority Leader Trent Lott to build friendship among fellow Senators and staff members. Since 1996, men and women on Capitol Hill have worn seersucker on Thursdays to show a sense of tradition and to enjoy its comfort. This year the Senate failed to hold the event because of a need to be "serious" during difficult times. We believe, now more than ever, that seersucker is a fabric that binds us together.

      The United States Senate has been called the “World’s Greatest Deliberative Body." For over 200 years its venerable traditions have served as common ground to bind Senators of opposing beliefs in their shared noble purpose. While Seersucker Thursday is more an homage to tradition than a tradition itself, given the current state of virtual enmity between members I believe it's important to uphold even the small ones like this to keep what common ground there is left. Please do your part to mend the rift and reinstate Seersucker Thursday.

      I like seersucker itself as well as the goal of building relationships in our dysfunctional government.

      I'm a cotton farmer in the Miss. Delta. Seeing so much cotton on a national stage is very pleasing to me. "It's the fabric of our lives."
