New Thing #48--Letter to the Editor

I read an article in the Post-Dispatch yesterday about a proposed state law. The bill states that students who had dropped out of school or had bad grades would be unable to get their drivers licenses until they were 18.

I believe this law would not be a good idea, so today I wrote a letter to the editor. According to the requirements for the paper, the letter had to be 250 words or less, and I had to include my name address and phone number (for verification purposes).

I don't know how many letters the paper receives each day; perhaps just one person will read what I've written before putting it in the "reject" pile, but it felt good to put my ideas into words and send them off.
