A colleague sent me this screen grab, which reveals the shocking news that Councilman Lee Kleinman has gotten a haircut. D Magazine was the news outlet that first covered this tonsorial issue, interviewing the councilman about his hair choice back in January. Today he tells us that it got too shaggy, and he cut it about a month ago. (Apologies for not noticing until today’s Transportation & Infrastructure Committee meeting.) Your reporter told the councilman that if he lived in District 11, he’d immediately start a petition. Kleinman’s texted response: “Now that I’m term limited, I can make unpopular decisions without fear of reprisals.”
Dr. Clay Cockerell, fourth from left in the photo, strongly denies any wrongdoing, but the CBS News investigation threw a fork in his plans to become chairman of BUMC's dermatology department.
