NYTimes ‘Fashion & Style’ does better investigative Journalism than the Caucus Blog

NYTimes flies to Alaska to cover Palin’s Hair Salon.

– More Facts
– More Details
– More Investigative Journalism

See for yourself:

Hillary Clinton struggled for years to achieve hair credibility. Now Ms. Palin’s upsweep is being praised and derided across the Internet. Do her bun and bangs signal that Ms. Palin does not want to attract attention to her appearance — even as she wants to remain presentably attractive?

Followed by a zinger of facts and figures, even detailing the square footage of the salon Palin goes to:

The ballerina-pink Beehive, in a 1,400-square-foot ranch house, is a cut-and-color shop. A haircut is $30, discounted to $20 if you get the $95 color treatment. In a downstairs nursery, the stylists’ babies play with mannequin heads. In a phone interview, Mrs. Steele, 37, described a kind of “Steel Magnolias” on permafrost, featuring Ms. Palin as a recurring presence.

Illuminating:

When Mrs. Steele expressed frustration with her industry, Ms. Palin told her to stop complaining and “run for something!” (She didn’t.)
