Sure, Dave’s mellifluous tones have been going out over the airwaves as usual, but as for public appearances, and photo ops… not so much.
The reason: a strange swelling of his head. (see photo). The recent shot of Ross leaked to BlatherWatch shows a melon grotesquely out of proportion to his tiny body and nearly as large as Dori’s!
There might be a medical answer… like late-onset hydrocephalism. But more likely it's work-related - large heads are common with broadcast entertainers (even radio talent, who are known as some of the most pathetic people on earth).
Some opine that Dave's been a closeted egotist all these years: his famous self-deprecation, just schtick. “He must have a higher opinion of himself than we ever suspected," says a KIRO source, "and his head just decided to catch-up."“He is a liberal, they’re arrogant by definition,” says Monson, “doesn’t surprise me one bit seeing his head grow.”
(We must confess that we intentionally misled with our headline. Neither Democrats nor Republicans care about Dave Ross's head).
