Rampant Anti-Baldism

From an interview with Larry David, who premiers the 8th season of Curb—the funniest show on TV—this Sunday:

In the episode “The Seder” [season five], Larry was concerned that a follically-challenged sex offender was “very bad for the bald community.” Who, in your opinion, is good for the bald community?

I’m not the president of Hair Club for Men. I’m not president of the bald celebrity league. I don’t even know who the bald celebrities are. It used to be Telly Savalas and Gavin MacLeod. Who else is there? Mikhail Gorbachev is bald… Joey Pants… there’s not that many of them. I mean, we always welcome new members with open arms. Most actors don’t let themselves get bald. They get transplants or weaves or something. When’s the last time you saw a bald president? There’ll be a woman and a Jewish president and maybe even a Muslim president before a bald president. That’s my prediction: There’ll be a Muslim president before a bald president.
