Baa baa humbug! Calling someone a 'black sheep' has long been society's unsubtle way of saying that the chap or chapette in question is a cad and a scoundrel, a rascal who deserves nothing better than a cold shoulder and a disparaging glance. That may be so, but we think it's worth bearing in mind that one generation's outcast is another's idol. For better or worse it's these characters who make the world more interesting for the rest of us. Just ask Jesus.
