Update on Views

Thanks to many readers who have been sending in letters for our Views page.

In many cases they're coming in close to or right at the new length limits -- 200 words for general interest letters and 150 words for election letters.

Those election letters are due today and they're being sent in orderly fashion. We appreciate it.

Some readers have submitted really special columns for Views, and that's a rewarding part of the job. You'll read two of those special columns on Sunday and Monday.

Thanks to all who are contributing to Views. There's room for you too, if you're just thinking about it.

And thanks to readers who have sent notes saying their initial outrage at the change from opinion to Views was misguided, and they like what they're seeing after all. Those notes are appreciated as we move ahead.
