hornby on hair and depression

since yesterday i screwed up the link to the nick hornby story @ the guardian here are some quotes from it:

We step on to the street, and pass a young man with a sky-high Afro. “Oh God, I was dreading this,” says Hornby. “It was great when it was cool to be bald, but now hair’s back in fashion.” […] “He made the mistake of having hair, which I always think is vulgar and rather unfashionable and cheap.” […] “I wouldn’t call it depression now. It’s just a sort of strain of English miserablism, where you know everything is crap and everyone who pretends it isn’t is kidding themselves. Yeah, this is the best it will ever get.”
