I found this New Yorker article amusing, as well as these seven photos of striking writers, all in various stages of facial hair flourish. There's Rob Dubbin, a writer for “The Colbert Report." Colin Jost, a writer for "Saturday Night Live" (and possible Sylar look-alike). And more.

John Solomon, another "S.N.L." writer, said he was sporting "kind of a Dan Haggerty," referring to the actor who played Grizzly Adams, and that he'd just been called the Unabomber by a visiting acquaintance from Greece. "The person who blew everybody's mind was Paul Shaffer," he said, recalling an impromptu pep talk that Letterman’s bandleader had delivered to the strikers outside Rockefeller Center.
