Letters to the Editor

Short, well argued letters will be given preference and we reserve the right to shorten and edit all submissions. Letters also sent to other newspapers will not be considered for publication. All letters, including those sent by e-mail, must contain the writer's full name, physical address and a daytime telephone number. Pseudonyms or pen-names will be accepted, provided the author's full name, address and telephone number is provided for our records.
