Express your opinions
The Democrat-Gazette welcomes your opinions. Unfortunately, not all letters received can be published or acknowledged. Clarity, brevity and originality are particularly valued in letters to the editor. All statements of fact are checked for accuracy; letters will be edited and may be republished in all media. Letters and guest columns become the property of the Democrat-Gazette and cannot be returned. No letters from nonresidents, copyrighted material, poetry, form letters, anonymous letters or pseudonyms can be used.
