New Hampshire's Bling Bling Ring Fling

I read an article today about a housepainter in Hollis NH who apparently stole a ring, worth about $7,000. He must have been a few sandwiches short of a picnic, because he thought swallowing the ring at the police station was a good idea.

Well, he was taken to a local hospital, and it was decided a medical necessity to perform surgery to get the ring out. It's a good guess that the surgery probably cost $30,000 or more....

And so, I want to know who pays for the surgery?

With the presence of barbers dwinding in the state, lawmakers are trying to remedy the situation.

Read more.

Okay... so what is really behind this?

The current hair salons can easily take up the slack for the barbers... it must be a nostalgic guy thing.
