A Hairy Situation


Dustin Reader, an eighth-grader at Ohio's Garfield Middle School had his barber shave stripes into the hair on the side of his head and a large "B" on the back of his head. The haircut was designed to honor the Cincinnati Bengals football team. But as soon as school officials saw it they gave him in-school suspension saying the haircut violated school rules against "extreme/distracting makeup, haircuts and hairstyles."
