I just came across a photo of Pence with Ronald Reagan in 1988.
It naturally showed a much younger man, 29 years ago, with dark,
very curly hair, and the article described him then as an Irish-Catholic,
second generation American. I know that hair can change with age, but
I suspect that Pence, when he gave up Catholicism to become an Evangelical
Christian, also decided to hide his ethnic roots and appear more WASPish
by "processing" his curly hair. What do you think?
