    The Pentagon on Wednesday relaxed its rules governing the religious apparel and facial hair that troops can wear or maintain while in uniform, permitting in some cases tattoos, body piercings and other religious items.  The Defense Department issued the changes via a directive Wednesday afternoon. As part of the military's changing approach to making religious accommodations, the new policy will allow service members to sport different kinds of religious garb and hairstyles so long as they don't have an "adverse effect on military readiness, mission accomplishment, unit cohesion, and good order and discipline."  The changes create several new categories, besides...

    Literary sorts say that every man has a novel inside him. That’s not true — it’s a letter of complaint. But every man does have an inner beard. And, just as every woman has considered letting out her inner part-time lesbian, so every man has considered letting out his inner beard. Sadly, the right girls say no and the wrong men say yes. Here’s the stubbly truth about beards: this is the only thing you need to know, the alpha and omega of eek topiary. If you look like Jabba the Hut without a beard, you’ll look like Jabba the...

    Did you go to see the new Harry Potter film over the weekend? You could have been unwittingly supporting beardism, say facial hair campaigners. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets may seem like a spot of harmless family fun, but the film could set back the cause of beard wearers at a vital time of year for the long-suffering hirsute man.

Such "end of a broom" fakes give beardists ample ammunition to taunt...
