I don't remember why I took this picture, but isn't it great?

Every once in awhile, I get the itch to do a little research. It seems most of what is represented for beards is the beard/mustache combo. This, of course, results in me getting the occasional question about why I don’t have a mustache or jokes about me sporting an Amish Metal look (which I may have started?). I decided to start looking online, and here’s what I found out. (more…)

First of all, who is in charge of naming things? I think they should be fired. The words “politically correct” would seem to signify appropriate content for a speech given by a politician or something. It’s about as bad as “social engineering.”  Anyway, contrary to what you may think after reading my post about the confederate flag from a couple of weeks ago, I’m not a fan of political correctness.
