Letter: Brooks is good addition to The News op-ed page

Brooks is good addition to The News op-ed page

I am so pleased that David Brooks’ column from the New York Times is being published in The Buffalo News. I have watched Brooks, a Republican, and his counterpart, Mark Shields, a Democrat, on the “PBS NewsHour” for many years. The two have won at least one award for civility in their discourse, while often offering opposing views.

Brooks and Shields, while respectively representing a “conservative” and a “liberal” outlook, are models of moderation, intelligence and compassion, and the type of persons whose words one listens to and considers, whatever the personal outlook. How rare!
