Get thy ears lowered

Letter to the Editor | Monday, September 8, 2008

Jimmy Clausen needs a haircut. Based on the number of people I heard expressing this same sentiment at Saturday’s football game, I may be on to something. Rather than simply complaining about the issue, I would like to propose, with our young quarterback’s cooperation, the following: I will personally donate twenty dollars to pay for the man to seek the services of a barber or hair stylist of his choice, provided it approaches something resembling last year’s (let the Google image searching commence). I also challenge all students, faculty, and staff to match, exceed, or otherwise contribute to increasing this sum. The money collected will go to pay for the initial cut, as well as the possibility of a couple more later on in the season. All remaining donations will go to Hannah & Friends. I think it’s a win-win.
