Ave Atque Vale: Vidal Sassoon

I knew him as the London-born celebrity hairstylist who made people look utterly stunning (see some glorious examples), but I had no idea that he fought in Israel's war of independence and later set up an academic center for the study of anti-Semitism at Hebrew University (website here). Sassoon died in LA on May 9 at age 84.  Hail and farewell, sir.

 (OK, I confess that now I have a sudden urge to watch You Don't Mess with the Zohan.  Am I a bad person?  Probably.)
