“For this was the kind of paradigmatic young person it was possible to both extravagantly admire and deeply despair of, a stern intolerant moralist as well as a giddy, buoyant enthusiast, someone perhaps best viewed as a walking Rorschach test.”   – Kenneth Turan, on ‘Into The Wild’

Is there ever an excuse for calling a person ‘paridigmatic?’ Someone help Kenneth Turan, before he revives ‘trope’ or ‘gravitas!’
