Part of the Picture

Extrait d’un courriel: 
I keep returning in my mind to the remark you made near the end of our Zoom. Something like: “Once a political scientist, always one, which means looking at the facts in the face.”
True, the facts of human social behavior is hard to discern but way too much of political commentary is part of the picture rather than a description of the picture — if I can out it that way.
Thx for that nugget.
