Beards are often said to indicate a man wants hide something or not be seen. Former Vice President Al Gore grew a beard after the notoriously contested presidential election of 2000. But beards aren’t the only way to hide.
As former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich became more embroiled in scandal, his hair got longer and longer. In the photo on the right, he is deep in accusations of bribery. Either he just didn’t want to see things because they were so bad, or he desperately wanted to hide beneath his hair and not be seen.
