A letter for a letter 
I'm re-loving Maclean's over the past 6 months or so. Here's a letter I read tonight that so summarizes the change to the magazine:

Bravo for your sensible defence of Wal-Mart. It is great to read journalism that stops pandering to the kind of sentimental so-called economics by which most of us evaluate the world of business. For years I have done my smug, Canadian best to disdain Wal-Mart for its American bargain-bin style, but I'm half glad to be exposed for the elitist prat that I am.
I also appreciate someone finally outing those well-funded multi-national unions for being as avaricious as the corporations they so noisily decry. You folks are turning a truly lousy magazine, full of centrist snobbery and occasionally stunning banality, into a decent read.
At first, I thought you ad just made it look like The Economist. But, lo and behold, a sharp-minded, opinionated, serious magazine has emerged that is not afraid to be playful and yet knows how to take on an issue.
Graham Nickel, Abbotsford, B.C.
