The Letters to the Editor section of the newspaper was longer today than usual. Counting the editorial cartoon the letters occupied a full half of the “Perspective” page. Eight letters comprise what I like to think of as the therapy section of the paper.
One screams out, “You really don’t get it do you?” as if they’re carrying on a conversation with a person across the table from them. Another says, “I am writing to inform you of my opinion.” Still another angsts over why a road project is taking so long.
