... en route to Spokane today. Take it away, Post Falls Dad: "This afternoon I agreed to take my daughters and 12 y/o nephew to Spokane for a mall visit. As we were driving out of Post Falls we passed 2 very hi-dollar new sports cars, both covertables, and both being driven by fiftysomething men going bald. As we passed the last one, my nephew turns to me and asks 'Uncle, I can't wait until you lose your hair so you can stop driving this minivan and drive one of those.' What would your readers rather have? A full head of hair and drive a man-van, or bald and drive something exotic?"
