Michael Morell, Acting Director, CIA, Hair
Morell, born 1958, is now 54 years old, 6 years younger than David Petraeus
at 60. He appears to dye his hair like immediate predecessors Petraeus and
Leon Panetta, unlike white-maned Robert Gates and bald-headed Michael Hayden
and most previous CIA directors. Perhaps it is now a special effects requirement
for CIA leadership to appear no older than greying Obama and to flatter by
mimicry Congressional leaders' ageless do's and helmet-headpieces.
