Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the Manchurian Candidate, the latest newcomer to wow the crowd at 7th and Montana with his avant-gard sense of style. What's he a Candidate for? One look at his broad-brimmed, just-in-from-the-rice-paddies straw hat and his Ming-the-Merciless beard and I'm sure you'll agree ... he's a shoe-in for the Mad Hatter Hall of Fame. In related news, it was Hats Off to Neighbor Sean this morning as word spread that he opened his home and heart last week to an underprivileged student from Uganda. He and his family hosted a young girl who sings in the Matsiko Children's Choir to help raise funds and awareness for the plight of underprivileged children in Africa. The choir performed last week at Disneyland and is currently making its way through Orange County.
