George Zimmerman's Gun, Thomas Jefferson's Hair -- Which Would You Want?

I’ve never liked the idea of buying hair. Wait...I should probably explain that. I’m not talking about the way Elton John bought hair for $28,000 and had it surgically attached to his head. I’d certainly consider that, if I didn’t end up looking like Donald Trump…
