From the NYT CityRoom:
Gov. David A. Paterson showed up to a meeting of state leaders meeting on Wednesday morning determined to trim the budget, but there was one immediate trim that everyone noticed: his mustache....
The governor, answering questions after he met with state leaders to discuss the budget, was first asked what happened to his mustache.
“Additional deficit means additional cutting,” he said, “and it’s likely before the end of this process you will see me bald.”
