LETTERS: Critique on commentary

Re: Social serenity trumps presidential debate, Oct. 14 Reverse Angle column.

Some serious, senior advice for columnist Nick Greenizan, a Peace Arch News sports reporter:

Stick to your job reporting on kids’ sports. It’s a lot less dangerous to deal with furious parents.

International politics – especially in the U.S. – is, obviously, still way over your head.

Besides that, somehow the chief editor allowed you to hijack the important centre of the ‘Opinion’ page usually dominated by columnist Frank Bucholtz, a mature man who knows his subject and reflects on and deals with it intelligently, without the consistent juvenile flowery vocabulary  of your “Reverse Angle” – with my emphasis on “reverse.”
