'My hair is my country'

Posted By on Tue, Sep 12, 2006 at 11:15 AM

That headline was the utterance of a hero of my youth --  Darrell Fuselier. He said it circa 1966, on the driveway in front of Lake Charles High School, when rampaging jocks and a thick-headed assistant principal were trying to shear the male population of bangs of the sort the boys from Liverpool were sporting. Darrell intended to keep his Beatle-brow.

I'm reminded of  those immortal words by the huge hubbub in Watson Chapel over school uniform policies. When a school administrator decides to take leave of his/her senses, it's a fearsome thing. At Watson Chapel, they've suspended top students there for inappropriate "stitching" on pants and a designer belt buckle. The parents are mad as hell.
