Women in Boston, you may want to follow Miss Manners' advice about how to sit: Cross your ankles and keep your knees together when you're wearing a skirt. But it's not for fear of appearing unladylike in public, but because the Massachusetts State Supreme Judicial Court ruled that Michael Robertson, who arrested for taking pictures up women's skirts on public transportation, did not violated the law.
