All letters are subject to editing for grammar, spelling, taste and length. The best letters are no more than 300 words long and deal with one specific subject. Three hundred words is about half a page, double space, on an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper.
Letters are generally limited to one per month per writer, although the newspaper occasionally makes exceptions for particularly timely and urgent issues.
We reserve the right to decline letters we find to be unauthentic, inaccurate or tasteless.
