Lady Cab Driver...Please Lose the Henna?

I've always secretly wanted to drive truck for a brief stint--or hey, maybe cabs. Reading all that Daniel Handler (while listening to Prince's "Lady Cab Driver") has romanticized the notion of the female cabbie for me. But I might want to keep those inclinations stateside, or at least just out of China. According to a recent "self-improvement list" issued by the Beijing Transportation Management Bureau in preparation for the '08 Olympic Games, cabbies must now adhere to stricter personal appearance sanctions...Including, if you're a female, no more "red hair" or "big earrings."
