A friend of mine sent me this interesting commentary on American presidential hairstyles.
My favorite bit is this paragraph:
"Better than the mediocre hair, to the mind of the Manolo, are the example of those politicians, like the Ike and the Gerry Ford, who gracefully went bald without resorting to the dreadful combovers, or the hair plugs, or the ridiculous and expensive custom “hair systems”. This willingness to stoically face the follicular misfortune is the testament to their personal rectitude and the strength of their characters."
This gives me the courage to stoically face my own follicular misfortune.
