Bald Is Beautiful

Today is Bald and Free Day (some people celebrate Oct.7).

Bald means lacking hair on the head, but it also means undisguised. That may be a hint to quit trying to disguise the baldness with comb-overs. They don't work.

Free refers to bald people gaining freedom:
- free from bad hair days
- free from shampoos and other hair products
- free time saved from hair appointments
- free to be you

So today, every bald or balding man, woman or child can relax and feel free today. And remember -- bald is beautiful! After all, it is quite the style and many people disguise their heads to be bald -- shaved heads are popular.

By the way, you don't have to be bald to appreciate how beautiful baldness can be. Sometimes bald men like their heads stroked, but always ask first.

Here I am with my favorite bald sweetheart.

Vote for the World

Help one person make a difference with a potential global impact.

American Express asked cardholders for their ideas. Almost 1200 submitted an idea for a project that can make a positive difference in the world. They were narrowed down, and now there are five finalists. The winner gets $1,500,000 to see the project through. The remaining finalists share $1 million.

The winner, chosen by vote, will be announced Oct. 14. See the five projects and vote for your favorite to become the Member Project 2008.

Will it be early detection of Alzheiner's, providing school supplies, making loans to innovative people, or feeding children (two proposed projects are ideas to feed children)? Which will it be?

You decide.
