Now, what about the women-watchers who feel they are the victims of another kind of put-on? We're talking about the men who think there is nothing in this world (or beyond it) as mentally, physically and spiritually inspiring as a beautiful pair of female legs, improved by the addition of sheer, skintight hose. These men -- loyal, upstanding Americans every one -- have spent their whole adult lives admiring the legs of American girls and bringing them the worldwide recognition they deserve. And for these men, nothing did it like nylons that ended halfway to two-thirds of the way up the thigh, supported by taut garter straps. There was no reason, in their view, for women to change this fashion. Perfection had been reached -- with the possible exception of slightly shorter skirts to enhance the tease.
