Dear Nurse Dave,
So are beards cool right now or have too many people grown them to the point where they are no longer cool or are beards just always cool?

Hey Peter I got your answer right here. Robert Redford in Jeremiah Johnson.
Is there anything not cool about that beard? The answer is of course no. You need some more help? Here's Charleton Heston in Planet of the Apes.
So the answer is that beards are always awesome. Especially if you are starring in a movie in the late 1960's or early 1970's.
