Letters to the Editor

Letters may be sent by e-mail or postal mail. See info above. Letters should be 300 words or less. Deadline for submitting letters is noon on Thursday of each week. For verification purposes and if questions should arise, letters must include the author’s name, address, phone number, grade level and major (if a student). We will not print phone numbers or addresses except city. The editor will consider publishing letters some might view as “negative” or “critical,” but those letters, like all submitted letters, need to be well thought out, organized and provide examples to support the assertions made within the letter. The editor reserves the right to reject letters for publication if they: (1) are potentially libelous; (2) are seen as a personal attack rather than analytical criticism on a particular person(s), organization or group; (3) fail to include the specifications mentioned above (inclusion of the author’s name, address and phone number and not exceeding 300 words); (4) are offensive in that the material within the letter is any of the following: blatantly ageist, sexist, racist or homophobic; (5) are received past the deadline for the next issue.
