To the editor,
Years ago I took a class at Metropolitan State University that changed my morning routine. It was a logic class. I thought it would be similar to a statistics class I had taken previously. I was wonderfully wrong. It was a class that enabled me to flesh out opinions and evaluate arguments. One of the requirements of the class was to read the editorial page of the local paper.
I was a daily reader of a newspaper, but rarely opened the editorial section. His theory, and I believe it’s entirely accurate, is that you can get the heartbeat of your local community, state, country and the world at large by consistently reading this section. It is now the first section I turn to every morning.
I have recently moved to the area, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the Times paper. However, I’ve been disappointed in the disengaged readership. There are very few letters to the editor. I urge people to take pen to paper. Write about something that tugs your heartstrings, nudges your brain or tweaks your curiosity. I know I want to hear from you!
