David Baines was shot and killed for complaining about his barber's haircut on Jan. 2. The barber's friend did it, Assistant District Attorney Edward McCann said yesterday, after Common Pleas Judge Lisa A. Richette sentenced Kenneth "Jahad" Richmond, 18, to nine to 18 years in prison for the fatal shooting of Baines, 21, on Pierce Street near 23rd. McCann said Richmond, of Point Breeze Avenue near 18th Street, pulled a gun and shot Baines during a dispute between the victim and his former barber.

NFL owners will consider a proposal at their meetings next week to ban players from having hair flow from their helmets below their names on the back of their jerseys. That might affect the image of Troy Polamalu, but help him on the field. Two seasons ago, the Pittsburgh safety with the long ponytail had his hair grabbed by Kansas City's Larry Johnson and was thrown to the turf after an interception against the Chiefs. The rule banning long hair on the field was proposed by Kansas City.

So why has the President of the United States been forced to divulge the most intimate details regarding his personal life? There is enough blame to go around: We have turned into a public thirsty for sordid details about anyone and everyone. Talk shows spare no expense in articulating this unfortunate reality (no one knows why they refer to them as talk shows, given that so very little talking is going on; most of the time it's just shouting and name-calling). On any given day you can tune in to any talk show exploiting individuals with real problems.

WEIRD AL YANKOVIC. TLA, 334 South St., 8 p.m. Saturday. Tickets: $25. Info: 215-922-1011. Sitting on the bus before a show, quietly tapping away at a laptop, the mellow guy in the Hawaiian shirt hardly looks as if he's about to grind through a frenetic rock concert wielding an accordion. Even "Weird Al" Yankovic has his normal moments, most of them given to professional concerns like scripting the Disney Channel special he's working on now. In the world of rock 'n' roll comedy, Al Yankovic is unquestionably tops in his field.

Michele Rosati was having a bad hair day. But not that bad. Not bad enough to have someone in a restaurant come up behind her and chop off her 19-inch blonde ponytail with a knife. She couldn't believe it while it was happening. She couldn't believe it when it was over. She still can't believe it. "I just want to blink my eyes and my hair will be back," she said. So why did Richard Clunn, a 51-year-old bookkeeper who was having lunch at the restaurant, chop off Rosati's hair?

A Hulmeville man was fined $300 yesterday after being found guilty of harassment for cutting off the 19-inch ponytail of a woman last December at a local restaurant. The fine was imposed against Richard "Lefty" Clunn, 51, following an hour-long hearing before District Justice Jan Vislosky. All eyes in the courtroom were on Michelle Rosati, the 33-year-old Lower Makefield woman who lost her 10-year-growth of ponytail to Clunn's knife cut Dec. 21 at Michael's Restaurant & Lounge.

ON SUPER BOWL Sunday, most football fans will have their eyes directed on the field. But a whole lot of us Super Bowl watchers also will have our eyes trained on the sidelines watching for a glimpse of Fox Sports' Pam Oliver. She's easily the baddest female sports reporter on TV. But last month, during the NFC Championship Game between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers, armchair refs called a technical foul on her. No, it wasn't because Oliver, an industry veteran, got her facts wrong.

QUOTE "Picasso's terrible. He ain't art. . .Because his sun is a circle with lines going off it, and I used to do that in kindergarten. He has a stick guy sitting on a horse with the sun there. It ain't art. " - Jesse Ventura in the March issue of Playboy Jay-Z, a/k/a Shawn Carter, could be in big trouble.

If convicted, he could face up to 15 years in prison and really find out what "It's a Hard Knocks Life" is all about.

Showtime is in 45 minutes and Lisa Ling, the new co-anchor for "The View," thinks she might be having a bad hair day. Having plunked herself down in front of a mirror, she has a dubious look on her face as a stylist deftly parts her hair down the center and starts twisting it into two fat buns a la Princess Leia from "Star Wars. " "I think it might be a little bit much," Ling, 25, says a bit skeptically. "We'll check it out," Deidre Flaherty replies, as she continues twisting.

"Bad Hair Day" is the name of this sculpture on display at the Manayunk Arts Festival. The "found metal" sculptures, so named because they are made from items such as car and railroad parts, tools, and springs from garage doors, are the work of John Ruckdeschel of Green Pond, N.J. His piece was among the work of more than 250 artists on exhibit and for sale yesterday at the annual festival.

A company called eHammer, one of the new players in Internet auctions of antiques and collectibles, has just finished polishing its cyberspace crystal ball in order to predict the hot collectibles as 1998 draws to a close. Odds are casino and gambling memorabilia will be a good bet by the end of the year. There's a growing demand for vintage slot machines, older Las Vegas poker chips and souvenir ashtrays from old Rat Pack haunts like the Sands and the Desert Inn. The sports-collectibles market is being driven by spinoff interests by collectors of items like wooden golf clubs and canvas golf bags, as well as wooden fishing poles and hand-tied flies and lures.

Singer/rapper Smooth has been on the verge since her single "You Got Played" rocked the "Menace II Society" soundtrack. While Li'l Kim and Foxy Brown were still dreaming of Prada and ballers, Smooth was doing her thing. After a lengthy hiatus, she returned this year with her third album, "Smooth Reality," which concentrates on her vocal ability instead of her rapping. Her current single, "Strawberries," is the most successful of her career. The L.A. native is known as much for her luscious looks as for her vocal skills, but she hopes that, after this album, she'll be more greatly appreciated for her musical talents.
