A barber shop bond with dad

I read the article ``Enthroned on the Barber's Chair,'' Oct. 25, with great delight. What great memories of going with my dad on a Saturday morning to pay a visit to ``Shorty'' the barber.

Suddenly, I found myself back in the Little Rock barbershop reading the latest ``Superman'' comic book, waiting with great expectation for my turn in the ``king's throne'' and the splash of the sweet-smelling barber's powder around my neck signifying the end of another haircut with Dad. Thanks for the journey back in time. Robert M. Moore, Coronado, Calif.
