Quandary Resolution 4422
nugacity, swage, doctrine of signatures, couthie

Recently crowned as the Editor-in-Chief of the major newspaper conglomerate The Herald, Howard Ridley, admired for his enthusiastic and couthie nature by all, was quintessentially a radical man, who not only vociferously spoke against the concept of old school pedagogy in print media (diminishing it to be a vapid doctrine of signatures and condemning forthrightly its nugacity), but also was an astute highbrow who knew how to work his way around people and their diverse opinions, much like an adroit blacksmith's powerful swage cautiously moulding a brittle metal.
