April's shower of letters

We've published 73 letters to the editor in April, perhaps a record for a month.


Thanks to our writers, and of course this count does not include the many community op-ed columns published.

As I often mention this shower of print letters comes at a time when online comments are bustling. It's interesting.

And our letter count does not include the five to 10 letters that we get every day from people across the country who think their view is important to us.

Every day they arrive. And you can probably guess the topics.

We prioritize local letters and we thank the writers. If you send something to expect a quick response.

If you don't get one please contact us in a day or two. Chances are we never received the e-mail.
