Yeah, the kids are alright.
Once upon a time, there was a snivelling little git of a high-school student in Hamilton who went by the pretentious title of "Mr. Erl," who joined the Blogging Tories and spouted vapid right-wing silliness and who received his proper share of CC-flavoured beatdowns here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
And then, curiously, Mr. Erl suddenly renounced his staunchly-held wankitude, apologized profusely for having been such a twatwaffle all that time, and vanished. But now he's back. And, by the look of things, all grown up and someone to be reckoned with intellectually.
This is a good thing, and Mr. Erl should be celebrated as dramatic proof that some people truly can outgrow their wankitude. Well, not these insufferable cementheads, but you know what I mean.
