As I draft this, more than 300 readers have voted in last week’s poll of the best beards in Mormon history. Some beards ran away with the vote for their categories; one or two have been running neck and neck (cheek to cheek?) with first one, then another edging ahead by a whisker. It’s possible that by the time this poll posts, the one who is down now by a hair will have pulled ahead. Nevertheless, I have plucked one winner from each category based on who was ahead at the time I typed this.
Just for fun, I’m throwing in Amasa Lyman as a wildcard.
Who wins top honors as the Great Bearded One?
