The Washington Times - January 7, 2010, 05:49PM

Watching President Obama’s Thursday afternoon talk on terrorism I was struck by his uniformly dark hair.  This comes a day after the Drudge Report headlined “The Year Barack Went Gray.” See for example this picture posted January 1, or this one of him returning from his trip to Hawaii. Now there is no trace of gray whatsoever. AFP is running a photo in which the top of his head is cropped out (see here), maybe as a courtesy. I suppose the White House wants the president to convey an image of youth and vigor when discussing such a serious topic, but the sudden change was a little bit distracting. At least we know they pay attention to Drudge.
