The BBC’s Andrew Marr: “A lot of bloggers seem to be socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed young men sitting in their mother’s basements and ranting. They are very angry people.” Ha ha, the joke’s on him — I haven’t been “young” in years!

    No kidding. . .And why is it that a person’s skin condition is de facto a sign of bad character? I say that Marr is guilty here of dermatism.
