Is your magazine a left-leaning one? Sorry, I’m not familiar with your magazine, but I thought it was odd you thought that sleeves could be rolled immaculately. I also wondered why you would make such a big deal about a candidate emphasizing what is most current on the minds of voters. It isn’t a flip-flopping, morally mushy position to emphasize your positions on current events like the economy. I write fiction novels for a living. Your descriptions, plots, interior dialogue, exposition and narration are better suited to novel-writing than news. br> — David G. Woolley
