Hundreds defend yoga pants in protest parade

The organizer of a yoga pants parade held in response to a man's letter lamenting the attire says the author of the letter is backpedaling by saying it was a joke.

Jamie Burke says even if Alan Sorrentino was joking, it doesn't change the tone of his message.

More than 300 people peacefully paraded Sunday around the town of Barrington wearing yoga pants in response to Sorrentino's published letter calling the garb "ridiculous."

Sorrentino had said he hoped readers would enjoy the letter as a break from presidential campaign rhetoric and that he enjoys yoga pants and even owns a pair.
