Why Michelle Obama's Hair Matters - Yahoo! News What a moronic paper. I can just imagine if some white woman posted a similar piece on the Cultural importance of some white First Lady's hair do, what the liberals would be howling about. Kooks worry about that crap just like kooks worry about her wearing shorts or a cardigan or short sleeves. Those only become news if she wears them to a FORMAL event. Although formal attire for women can and does include dresses with out sleeves.
