Don’t feign it

My comprehension of nuance and the obvious lets the reader know which way he leans

Editor, The News:

Mike Shields should be advised that his “nuanced” writing was understood completely, even though it was couched in the obvious.

He  previously noted the misdeeds of Conservative Senator Mike Duffy, a “Party apparatchik,” and Conservative Pamela Wallin a, “grandee,” as well as B.C. Liberal aides “corruption charges.” But the letter he refers to fills in the misdeeds of the other party that he omitted, and there were many.

Even though he says he is not a member of any political party, my comprehension of nuance and the obvious lets the reader know which way he leans.

The “issue here” is to state your opinion plainly and not feign being non-partisan.
