Fed up with Shea

Regarding “Lawmaker casts lot with Nevada lawbreaker”:

The April 18 article is well done for the most part, and should be reprinted in bold in a condensed version for several days during Rep. Matt Shea’s re-election campaign. The suggested improvements are as follows:

In Paragraph 3 and twice in Paragraph 5, the term “feed” is inappropriately used instead of “graze.” When ranchers feed their cattle they are hauling hay and/or grain to them, usually in a confined space such as a feedlot. Paragraph 7 uses the term “feedlot” incorrectly, perhaps meaning “losing their allotments”?

It is really sad when our Spokane citizens re-elect him knowing his radical disregard for the law.
