More on Editorial Bias (José Ignacio Soler, Venezuela, 02/20/21 4:22 am)

I want to comment on the issue raised by A. J. Cave in relation to the alleged bias of our extraordinary editor in relation to the Trump-Biden debate, and I will "stick a spike in Flanders" for him, as they used to say in Spain.

This matter has been discussed before by myself, and I would like to say that I think it is logical that John has his own views and contributes them to the debates proposed here. In most matters under discussion, John's comments normally maintain an objective and prudent distance, raising questions and proposing ideas, and that is in my opinion an extraordinary editorial task. If he sometimes propose his own opinions, they are welcome. His comments are always appreciated and well received, even if I do not agree with them.

Not even in the scientific community does absolute objectivity exist. All subjects carry intellectual, ideological, political, and/or religious biases.

JE comments:  Nacho, you are too kind.  We have always seen eye-to-eye except on one matter, and it's a hemisphere away:  you are strongly opposed to Catalonian independence, and I have a "let the Catalans decide" position.

Either way, I'm grateful to have a Venezuelan colleague and friend.  Just yesterday some of my students were fondly recalling your virtual visit last fall to our Spanish class. 

Please, when time permits, send us an update from the Caracas front lines.  Has the transition to Biden had any ripple effect on the mood in your city?
