This Tie Just Isn't Doing It For Me, I'm Afraid

Tonight, Brian Williams dons a very pleasant, very unremarkable tie of sky blue silk with narrow stripes--widely spaced--of navy. Oh, it's pleasant and breezy and springlike, to be sure. It's the kind of tie that Grandma would say, "Oh, now there's a nice tie to wear with your blue suit for Easter service!", or a tired wife might grab on her way out of Macy's and think, "This tie will be fine with that blue sportcoat and pale blue shirt for Angela's wedding." It's not edgy or avant garde, but it won't be a punch line at Christopher's bar mitzvah, either.
