BOOK REVIEW / Heavy duty talk show: 'It's Not About a Salary: Rap, Race & Resistance in Los Angeles' - Brian Cross, Verso pounds 34.95/ pounds 12.95; 'The Ice Opinion' - Ice-T with Heidi Sigismund, St Martin's Press/Pan Books pounds 9.99

Now it's much ado about Hillary's expensive hair-do

THINGS HAVE become a little hairy of late for the First Couple in the public relations department. First there was the furore over Bill's 50-minute trim on the tarmac of Los Angeles airport for the embarrassingly large sum of dollars 200 (pounds 130).
