to the editor
The newspaper welcomes brief letters (generally no longer than 400 words) that express an opinion on a currently newsworthy topic. The writer’s contact information must be included for verification. Letters that contain defamatory comments, open letters, third-party letters, letters sent to more than one publication, and letters that would more appropriately be advertisements, including Cards of Thanks, are unlikely to be published. One letter generally is allowed per writer per calendar month.
The dress code
To the editor:
For many years, eating establishments and businesses have had signs at the entrance: “No shoes, no shirt, no service.”
I have never heard of someone saying, “I have a right to dress as I please, and they can’t keep me from entering.”
Why is requiring a mask any different?
