I've always said some people can't drink a cup of coffee without intellectualising it.

If we must insist on making the personal the political then the "ideological subtext" to this article is surely rampant megalomania: my decision to grow a beard is important to the world precisely because it is MY decision and MY beard. I wonder what this guy would be like if he got a sniff of real power. Kim Jong Il perhaps?
