Leading Off (1/20/10)

1. Taylor Pugh, the long-haired Mesquite 4-year-old whose parents refused to cut his hair so that he could go to school, himself came up with a solution: braids. His mom says the do he wore yesterday made him look a little like Princess Leia. See for yourself. Me, I think Padmé Amidala is hotter. But to each his own.

2. Only 15 times has someone bowled a perfect 900 series. A Plano kegler by the name of Bill Fong took a perfect series into the final frame on Monday. His quote after that final ball: “How could one of the best things happen to me, and all of the sudden I am in the bathroom thinking I am going to die?” Congrats to Fong for bowling an 899.

3. On a serious note, if you haven’t donated yet to the Haiti relief effort, read this story about Jean Arnwine, a Highland Park woman who died while on a volunteer medical mission. Then consider donating $10 to the Red Cross by texting the word “Haiti” to 90999. The charge will be added to your phone bill.
