The Washington Times Weekly - - NATIONAL -

“The other day, I asked my bar­ber, Clin­ton Trues­dale, what ex­tras he might throw in to jus­tify charg­ing a cus­tomer four bills for a trim: ‘I’d go home and cook his fam­ily din­ner. Ask him if there was any­thing else he needed me to do.’ ”

So writes Leonard Pitts Jr., Pulitzer Prize win­ner for com­men­tary in 2004, re­gard­ing Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial as­pi­rant John Ed­wards’ pay­ing $400 each for a pair of hair­cuts in Cal­i­for­nia.
