Man, I'm really going bald now. I was looking at my reflection recently, and I noticed that there's a distinct triangular area on my forehead that once held many, many follicles. The skin in that zone is slightly smoother than the native forehead area below it, and when I raise my eyebrows, that smooth skin doesn't move. Because it's my scalp. Yikes.
On a lighter note, the Sunday NYT article about Freddie Mitchell still hasn't convinced me that I should treat him like a folk hero, although it's good for more than a few yuks. I'll say this, though: I commented recently that he looks slightly "Arabic," and a friend went one step further "Egyptian." If anything, Hollywood needs terrorists.
