Letters to the editor

January 7, 2008

Some advice as you compose your letter (for more detail be sure to read Terms of Service). Each of us has strong feelings about certain topics. Strong feelings are okay; expressing those feelings abusively or maliciously, or as a tirade, is not.

We’ve all written heated, intemperate letters and fired them off to the object of our wrath. A better idea is to write the letter, set it aside for a night or a day—then toss it in the wastebasket.  Now sit down and start all over, with the passion and purpose intact, but blistering prose removed. Try it.
