Not to put too fine a point on it, but that was always your dad's claim
(and, at one point, the position of the Metropolitan Council on Housing,
although they'd stopped saying it by the time I got there). It might be
true, but I'd want to hear more about it before I take anyone's word on it.

This is a fine example of careless writing that means nothing. You've
completely neglected why Michael condemned him, whether the charges were
valid or baseless, etc. The biography of Timerman (whom I know nothing
about) may be admirable, but is completely beside the point.
