Blagoyevich Hair

His 1971 John Travolta hair is the tell that's there's something wrong here. "My Boyfriend Got a Beatle Haircut and so, to keep him true, I go one too" -- Donna Lynn, WABC "Hot Prospect" 1/28/64.

Blagoyevich is a runt politician in the fine Ross Perot tradition except that he lacks the Texan's polished worldliness. I'm guessing the mountainous hair is to make up for the lack of stature...but then a real haircut would leave the lack of stature in place, so what's with the blow-dry bullshit?

Worst Year Since 1931

For the stock market. That's a long way back. Another generation completely. I don't get the impression that folks quite realize the extent of the effects. This is some serious shit.
