When you wish upon a star

Former conservative kid hero, Jonathan Krohn reflects on the backlash he's endured from his former fans after rejecting knee jerk conservative ideology. Actually a better written piece than any of the juvenile rants being spewed against him around Nutopia. Recommend it as a read in full, but here's the money quote:
I was just a 13-year-old kid spitting up the nonsense he’d learned. In the future, a good rule of thumb might be: If you’re not old enough to have consensual sex, you’re probably not old enough to make consequential political statements.
In the case of the alleged adults who now attack him for growing up and learning to think for himself, I suppose we have to amend the rule to read, anyone who hasn't acheived the emotional maturity of a ten year old...

Which pretty much includes every frothing at the mouth member of his former fan club.
