Rants aside, we're getting some really good letters to the editor of late on all different topics.
Writers are largely sticking to the 200-word limit and making their points, and I appreciate that greatly.
The rants will still be there, from some of the same people virtually every month, but my hope is that the Views page becomes a meeting place for ideas and many views are represented in a week's time.
And we're moving toward that, thanks for readers.
Take a look at the letters on our online opinion page and see what you think.
