On beards

In a saner world, people would stop asking me why I have a beard and start asking my clean-shaven friends why they scrape their faces with metal most mornings. Well, it's not quite the same thing, but according to today's Guardian, facial hairiness is coming into fashion:

Forty years ago a beard was a potent expression of the free-living, free-loving radicalism of 60s counterculture. For a while it was the sign of the slacker. Now it's no stranger to the Power-Point presentation. Until web 2.0 companies crash, old-fashioned businesses will have to get used to the hirsute.
