She needs a makeover. New makeup and a new hairstyle.

I think that she's cute just the way she is!

I agree with Anonymous. Cholo, the internet is no place for positive or supportive posts, particularly not the P-town Weekly forum.

Anonymous was simply trying to make a cheap, hurtful remark based solely on someone's appearance. Quite right, too!

I wouldn't say that my comment was "cheap" or "hurtful". The new DA is obviously talented, but could use an updated look. This reminds me of a quote I heard on "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy", where the Boston Red Sox were featured in one of the episodes. The guy who does hair said to one of the players: "You are a world class ball player, but this is not world class hair".

She could use an updated hairstyle and suit that are as powerful as what she will be doing in the legal system in this area.

Dear anon--

Have the courage to use you name the next time you decide to go the cheap route and bash someone on the basis of the superficial qualities you apparently expect from a leader in the legal community--I would rather have Nancy just the way she is than some fashion queen who has no clue on what she is doing.We already have a few of those on the national level. I can assure you that the Alameda County DA's office is in good hands--even if in your eyes she needs a redo!

I wonder? If the new District Attorney were a man, would any comments be posted about his appearance? Anonymous, if you really do live in Alameda County which Nancy will be charged to protect, it seems to me that you would be more concerned about her long running history of being tough on the bad guys and her advocacy for victims rights rather than on her appearance.

to "Baseball mom":

Nope. She needs a look that will be as powerful as the work she is going to be doing. See my previous comments. If you had really read what I wrote, there wouldn't have been a need for half of what you said.

Anonymous, I really do pray that neither you nor your loved ones are ever in a situation to find out how "powerful" she really is. Enough said.

That would be incorrect "Baseball mom". You are clearly upset about what I said. It is not insulting nor insensitive. Please see me original post (as well as the others).
