Now that panic buying of toilet paper and hand sanitizer is subsiding, people are moving on to the next phase of panic buying: hair clippers

Sales are moving at a fast clip. Hair dye is also a hot seller. COVID gray is an official color. Home barbers and hairstylists are sprouting everywhere. I am among them. I’m even contemplating a salon name. My two top contenders are “It’ll Grow” and “Oops!” A neighbor cut her husband’s hair with kitchen scissors and a comb. She started the cut two weeks ago and still hasn’t finished. Every time she sees a spot she missed she tells him to sit still and cuts a little more. His complaint is that he has no hair on top.

How a control tower works: Managing takeoffs and landings

This story is the second installment of a two-part story about how control towers work. We previously covered how the tower controls aircraft on the ground.

Their verdict? Across the board, the Netflix film is getting rave reviews and the most surprising thing about those reviews is that not only do critics say the movie is great, it’s funny to boot. In theory, we should expect this movie to be good. On paper, Scorsese directing De Niro, Pacino, Pesci in a film about organized crime sounds incredible. It’s not like this crew lacks experience in mob movies, and tackling the disappearance of Jimmy freakin’ Hoffa is the kind of storyline you’d want this murderer’s row to tackle.

JPMorgan Banker, Cops Badly Beaten in Hong Kong as Protests Rage Over ‘Anti-Mask’ Law
