Being on vacation for the holidays has me off my regular schedule. I was up way past my bedtime watching late night TV for the first time in too long, and the first thing worth noticing was Letterman's and O'Brien's shared resemblance to Father Christmas. Turns out, their Santa-like grooming is related to the writers' strike. At first I thought I'd missed a memo from the Style Police, dictating all men revert back to '78 facial hair. What a relief!
