Bald Kids

When I was of that age, if a kid shaved his head that closely it would be reasonable to see it as some kind of statement of punk or skinhead sympathies, or something else, but when I was that age close-shaved heads were just rare in general. Now they're pretty ubiquitous.

Not saying the fact that when I was that age a bald head could be seen as a kind of statement meant that it should have merited punishment, but I could at least see how school officials might have some reaction. Now I can't believe they'd even notice.
