Shirley Nipper, who has been the barber for thousands of Arkansas men at her Tower Building Barber Shop, is retiring to her Searcy country estate at 4 p.m. today.
Those who have depended on Shirley to give them a haircut (no stinking "styling" allowed) for more than two decades are now left to shift for themselves. Most are dreading finding a new barber who won't spout right-wing dogma into their ears while they are captive in the chair.
Smooth sailing, Shirley. You deserve a wonderful retirement.
