Lt. Gov. Brad Owen, (D-Lincoln High School), is sporting a new beard (with lots a salt and not much pepper) and it’s such a change from the usually clean-shaven Owen that it knocks the good senators off their stride.
Just about everyone who stood to speak on the floor of the Senate today remarked on it. And they kept telling Owen how good it looked.
Sen. Jim Hargrove did.
Sen. Mike Hewitt did.
Finally, Sen. Karen Fraser stood up to speak.
“You want to tell me how good I look, too?” Owen asked her.
“I’ve known you for a long time and you always look good,” Fraser said.
