Shades of Gray

Letters from Readers!

0 Comments 03 April 2013

Dear Shade Staff,

I trust you are familiar with the legal concept of “detrimental reliance.” I have, over the past several weeks, come to rely on The Shade to keep me abreast of the weekly Huangpo pig-carcass count. Other media report that the count is “over 16,000,” which is up significantly from your April 19 count of 8,965 pig carcasses — but “over 16,000” is far too vague to be useful.

I do not expect the same level of precision from others that I expect from The Shade. I am sure I am not the only reader who is relying on you for a continued accurate count of the Huangpo pig carcasses. Please kindly continue to provide it. You may find that, aside from being tremendously helpful, it will also be humorous on the third, fifth and ninth weeks.

Thank you!

Gustavo Equine, Esq.
