What passes for news  
Surely this person deserves some kind of award for heroism:

"Stylist: I tried to halt Britney shaving head."

Honest to Goddess CNN website headline, I kid you not. You would think that Britney tried to kill herself and the stylist valiantly grabbed the gun or the knife she was using.

Let's get a sense of proportion here--a young celebrity shaved her over-processed hair off. In a few short weeks she'll have a cute head of fuzz and in 6 months she'll have a stylish short head of hair. Does this news deserve such prominence as to be in the top half of CNN's web page, displacing more important headlines that ought to be drawn to our attention?

I realize I'm beating a dead horse, but it's either that or beat my head against the wall--and as usual, I already have a headache, thank you.

*gasp*
Britney shaved her head? How dare she copy my hair style!! And the same week I shaved mine off, too! Well, tell me what color she made it, so I can be sure and pick something different!

*snort*chuckle* and so on.

I really did shave my head this week, too. Shaved the husbands long beautiful locks off. (whimper) and the deal is if he gets to cut his off, mine is definately coming off. I hate my thin, crappy hair. My hairstylists have all said that if I keep coloring it, it will all fall out. I'm still waiting;)

Thank you. It is so disturbing.

I remember back in the 80s every baby dyke was shaving her head. They were so cute. Or has everyone forgotten Sinead, who really popularized that look? Everyone needs to take a chill pill!
