Re: “Best of 2008: In Vogue Winners Index

I stumbled a bit over your editorial selection of Nelson's as the best barbershop in town. I'm sure Nelson's is a fine place, but there's more to a barbershop than getting a haircut. For instance, does Nelson have institutional knowledge of political happenings around town? How long has he been in business? Can he keep a conversation going while keeping private things told to him in confidence? Did the writer ask whether he could be bled at Nelson's? After all, that's what the red and white barber pole outside is all about. No, there's only one barbershop in Colorado Springs that qualifies as number 1 and that's Herb's, number 2 in your article. Herb not only cuts your hair while you're alive, he'll cut it after you're gone. Well, I'm not sure about that last part, but he sometimes goes to nursing homes to cut the hair of clients who no longer can visit his shop. Lots of people cut hair. Herb's a friend who doesn't forget who you are from one haircut to another. He may not bleed people either but he's certainly number one in my book.
