Blagojevich Goes Gray

Since he first came on the scene, Rod Blagojevich has gotten attention for his hair. It seemed too rich, too lustrous to be real. It was the coif of a college sophomore, inexplicably planted on the pate of a 51-year-old.

And now, we finally know the truth.

Blago’s barber has spilled the beans, and our suspicions have been confirmed. The man’s roots are gray. And since the Englewood Federal Correctional Institution does not permit hair dyes on the premises, we’ll be seeing Rod’s wintrier side before too long. It might even look good.

All told, it’s one more reason to keep things natural: you never know when you’ll be indicted for corruption.

Thread of Truth


Political corruption is such a tradition in Chicago, it has developed its own dress code. Sixty years ago, it was the pinstripe, and while the mobster suit has gotten more subtle, it hasn’t gone away.

In light of the recent difficulties, we thought we’d point out where the trouble started. Look closely at Rod Blagojevich’s choice in fabrics: Would you trust a senate seat to a man with those checks?

We rest our case.
