Many of you have commented on my dashing new “strike beard” — my sister-in-law Laura even jokingly likened it to the beard of all beards belonging to Mr. Kenny “The Gambler” Rogers himself! — so I was thrilled to learn over the weekend, that I am not alone in my hirsute pursuits.
Conan O’Brien and several members of his writing staff have begun growing strike beards as well. Hooray! Even in this, the growth of manly, protest facial hair, we are all in this together. Here’s to other striking writers taking up our cause and growing strike beards of their very own!
That oughta show those bastards at the AMPTP how we really feel! We will not shave till we have a fair deal on the table. Grrr…go grizzly!

I had a blog reader vow not to shave until the strike was over. Of course, he lasted about two weeks. But maybe this will inspire him.
See you soon!
Let’s just hope that the strike doesn’t last long enough for you to be able to braid your beard, like that of Jack Sparrow in the pic!
