Hair salon customer ends up bald after power outageA customer at a Mississippi hair salon wound up bald after a power outage made it impossible to wash out the chemicals in her hair. The woman was getting a color treatment at the People’s Choice Hair Salon when the power went out, shutting down its electric water heater and preventing beauticians from rinsing the woman’s hair in time. Salon owner Tessa Mingo blames the power company. “There was no reason for my power to get cut off,” said Mingo. “I know I just paid my bill on the 19th.”

What if George had said yes to Monica?If Monica Lewinsky had her choice, she would have conducted her affair with George Stephanopoulos instead of Bill Clinton. A new book says Lewinsky was known among White House staffers for her shameless pursuit of Clinton’s young, tousled-hair communications director. “She used to flirt excessively with Stephanopoulos,” said former press secretary Mike McCurry. “She would hang around George’s office all the time, asking if she could go to Starbucks for him.” Only after Stephanopoulos rejected her overtures—and the lattes she brought—did she begin targeting Clinton.

Starbucks ousts English professor in language kerfuffleA New York City English professor was thrown out of a Starbucks for ordering a bagel “incorrectly.” Lynne Rosenthal says she’d politely asked for a “plain” multigrain bagel, but lost her temper when the barista demanded she say “without butter or cream cheese.’’ Rosenthal also refuses to use the chain’s terms “tall,” “grande,” or “venti” for its coffee sizes. “Linguistically, it’s stupid,’’ she says, “and I’m a stickler for correct English.”
