Our friend and inspiration, Miserable Shitehawk, emerged from his underground lair of solitude today with a typically more-enjoyable-than-1998-Cristal and impeccably-argued post. You've already seen it, but I'll plug it again.
I miss him so much. The guy (I think I'm safe in assuming he's a guy) is simply as good as it gets. He could write about fabric softener and I would be scintillated (though I really enjoy fabric softener).
Why he ever teamed up with that hack, Your Earless Reader, is still beyond me.
