An exclusive clientelle
(from a "Fresh Air" interview)
Karen Hughes, former White House counselor to Dubya, has trouble finding
shoes. She has big feet, size 12. For her wedding, for instance, she
crammed her feet into size 10-1/2. Hurt a lot, she reports.
After she moved back to Texas, she finally found a store here in Austin,
"Shoe Styles," that carries large sizes and lots of styles. Sort of a Big &
Tall shop for feet. So she's in there shopping, raving to the owner about
the wonderful selection he has in large sizes, and he says, "Oh, yes, the
transvestites love us."
