ABOUT THE OPINION PAGE
Local editorials are the opinion of the newspaper. Letters represent the opinion of the letter writer, syndicated columnists are presenting their views on national and international issues and local columnists are espousing their points of view, none of which necessarily represents the newspaper's opinion. It is our hope that the collective opinions presented here encourage you to share your opinions and further a public debate about the issues of our lives in a letter to the editor.
