Ron, what you say reminds of something that I read in an article on
fashion in LIFE magazine, back in the '50's, in the days of the
"poodle cut" hair style. It was, sadly, the years of my adolescence.
Yves St. Laurent, IIRC, was quoted as having said, "Women should look
like small, European boys."(!) And lo! so they did.

Today's male adolescents simply have no idea how lucky they are.
