Bangsar, Jan 6: Before blogs existed, Zaharin Mohd Yasin was a little known minor leader in Umno. Blogging made him quite famous, and then infamous. He was with Mahathir Mohamad and against Abdullah Badawi one day and suddenly was with Pak Lah the next day. He was with Najib Razak at first and now against him. Zaharin is not unique in that sense. There are many politicians and political activists who swing or jump from one end to the other like changing underwear. But treating MRCB, a professionally-run business concern, as a political punching bag just because the construction firm refused to give him what he demanded was a big mistake.
This morning, Zaharin ate humble pie and said sorry to MRCB for defaming it.

A lesson to all in social media, myself included. We don't live in a vacuum. We are governed and guided by laws. And common sense.
