Salut, Beardies! If you felt the earth shake this Labor Day weekend, it might have had something to do with the fact that your Bearded Scribe editors did something we haven’t done since our days together at Alma College—sat down and worked together in the same room. An epic reunion years in the making, it included scenic […]

Salutations, Beardies! Ahhhhhhh! It’s over…now what do I do? Thankfully, The Rising arrived by post in a timely fashion, and I set fast upon it.
