Letters to the Editor
We welcome and read all letters from readers, and we salute those people willing to sign their names to their opinions. The letters chosen for publication are a representative sampling of the opinions shared with us. We include all published letters on this blog and encourage readers to engage in a civil debate: Attack ideas, if you like, but not one another.
- All letters that are not signed with your name will not be published.
- We will not publish any personal attacks; attacks on public officials’ policy decisions are fair game.
- We will not publish letters that contain profanity. We won’t print the profanity and we don’t have time to censor it.
- All letters become the property of The Suburban Newspaper and The Burg, Inc.
- Letters should be no more than 100 words. We reserve the right to edit any letter over the limit to fit the available space.
- The same rules apply to Guest Editorials as to Letters to the Editor Rules 1-4.
- Guest Editorials should not exceed 500 words. We reserve the right to edit any editorial over the limit to fit the available space.
The opinions expressed in Letters to the Editor or by guest columnists are theirs alone, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions or policies of The Suburban Newspaper. The Burg, Inc. and The Suburban Newspaper are not responsible for the accuracy of any of the information supplied by the guest contributors, nor are they responsible for any offense caused inadvertently through interpretation of grammar, punctuation, or language.
All submissions should be in our offices no later than 12:00 noon on the Monday preceding the publication date on Thursday. We accept ordinary mail, but we prefer electronic media.
All posts: Letters to the Editor, Guest Editorial, general posts.
- All rules applying to print media will also apply to online submissions. We will not post nor will we allow to be posted any personal attacks or profanity.
- As with print, any attack on a public official’s policy stance is fair game.
