Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Just as a tree, though cut down, can grow again and again if its roots are undamaged and strong, in the same way if the roots of craving are not wholly uprooted sorrows will come again and again.
- The Dhammapada, Buddhist Collection of Moral Aphorisms (c. B.C. 300)

Well who would have guessed it? Maybe the biggest story from the inauguration was the first lady and her new hairdo. The media was absolutely gushing:

Matt Lauer: New term, new ‘do. First Lady Michelle Obama changes up her hairstyle with a bang as the final preparations are being made in Washington to host the President’s second inaugural.

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams took time out of the broadcast to provide this supposed “news” update: “First Lady Michelle Obama turned 49 today. But the big news came as the First Lady’s office inaugurated a Twitter account and sent out this picture showing the First Lady’s new bangs. Which Vanity Fair’s website instantly praised, calling them ‘featherly,’ and tracing their lineage in hair terms to Brigitte Bardot.”

White House correspondent Kristen Welker proclaimed: “The buzz over her bangs was immediate. People magazine tweeted: ‘Guess who’s turning 49 with bangs? Yep. bday girl @michelleobama debuted a fab new cut.'”

“Fab” was the exact word that came to my mind.

  • I think she looks better with the new do. Now if she can only get rid of the “I’m gonna castrate you with a rusty drywall saw.” permanent facial expression, she’d be kinda hot.
