"An association of blonde women in Latvia says it hopes to dispel some of the Baltic state's economic gloom with a parade and ball in the capital, Riga. It hopes to field 500 fair-haired women for a weekend of events, including a concert, a fashion show and "blonde golf", said organiser Marika Gidere. "People are depressed, they don't have enough positive emotions," she added. Latvia, home to 2.3 million people, is going through one of the most severe recessions in the European Union. Unemployment is rising and public sector salaries are being cut. "
