Washington Decorum: Note to Google co-founder Sergey Brin:

Billionaire-ness aside, Senators and Representatives generally view the informality of wearing jeans and tennis shoes on a lobbying visit to the Nation’s Capitol as disrespectful to both the institution, the process, and to them. Dressing like you don’t care what others think -- communicates that exact point.

Even billionaire wannabe, Anna Nicole Smith had the good sense to dress formally and respectfully when she visited Washington recently for her Supreme Court appearance on the legality of her potential inheritance.
