Cathy by Cathy Guisewite for October 07, 1998
Saleswoman: Women's fashions are always a barometer of society, and this fall's no exception. It's survivalist wear! Hooded sweaters...padded vests...blanket plaids...cargo pants...tent-like capes...mountain boots...thick, heavy, gear-like clothes symbolize our need for security and self-protection in these uncertain time...all yours for only $1,295.00! Assistant: For the first time in decade, I feel safe. Cathy: Help. I want to lash out, but I can't move.
