The men in the Barbershop are at it again as they comb through the week's latest headlines. This week, the guys discuss same-sex marriage, basketball legend Michael Jordan's induction into the sport's hall of fame and a controversial item being sold to commemorate Barack Obama's historic presidency: a Chia Pet.

NPR's Ken Rudin joins "shop" regulars Ruben Navarrette, Arsalan Iftikhar, and Jimi Izrael.
