From the article:


EPHRATA, Wash. —
A middle school teacher in Ephrata, Wash., vowed after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, that he would not shave his beard until Osama bin Laden was caught.

Gary Weddle shaved his lengthy beard off on Monday.

School principal Jill Palmquist honored Weddle on Monday, telling students they should admire the teacher for sticking to his vow not to shave for 3,454 days. Weddle's stringy, gray beard came to resemble bin Laden's beard.

Palmquist said Weddle endured ridicule, jokes and people telling him it was a lost cause.

An elite crew of American forces killed bin Laden during a daring raid on Monday, capping the world's most intense manhunt. He was the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Come on now, really? Okay, where is your proof? I guess your "hobby" is making up alternate theories for everything to make the world a more interesting place for you to live.

...and you spelled revolutionary wrong in your profile

This story has now gone national; Here's another article
with his before and after photos. His wife is happy as per
these comments:


"I wanted him to get rid of it, but it was his vow," his wife Donita said. "I respected his passion and keeping a vow. I was willing to look past the beard because I love him."

Now she said her husband looks 10 years younger.

"It's a very happy moment for us," she said. "It's a very happy moment for the whole nation."

True dedication.

I know it won't happen but I hope that with the news (lets forget WHEN OBL died and lets just focus on the fact that he is), idiots stop calling guys with long beards terrorists because that sure gets old and lame.
