Letter: Make it clear by making it concise

After trying to read and understand the letters to the editor over the years — like most of those in the May 27 edition, for example — I have some important advice: If you want people to read, let alone understand, your letter, keep it short!

We welcome letters of 275 words or fewer. Letters are subject to editing for length, clarity and grammar. They should be concise, to the point and original — no form letters, please. Letters dealing with private disputes or containing criticism of private individuals or businesses are not published. Letters must have a signature (unless emailed) and a full name, address and daytime telephone number (for verification purposes only). During periods of high volume, such as prior to an election, writers can be limited to one letter a month. Letters may be published on our website.
