Got an opinion? Pissed off about something in the news or in the world around you? It's important to send letters to the editor as soon as possible, not only because our opponents are writing theirs but because letters which are written on a subject which is currently "hot" in the news have a much better chance of being published than at any other time.

Please take a few moments to write a letter to the editor, whether it's one sentence or a few paragraphs. Editors choose the ratio of pro/con letters they print according to the ratio they receive.

Below are the e-mail addresses for letters to the editor of hundreds of newspapers. Send your letter to those newspapers in your area, or however many you want depending on the time you have to spare. Send each newspaper your letter in a separate message because some newspapers will not publish a letter if they know it has been sent to other publications.

Include your name, address and telephone number for confirmation purposes.

Large newspapers which will consider your letter:

USA Today -
FAX:    703-247-3108
       The Christian Science Monitor:
       The New York Times:
       The Chicago Tribune:
       The Dallas Morning News:
       The Boston Globe:   

We now have a list of all the papers for which we already have letters to the editor... you can consult these and write to the paper to comment directly on their views, making it more likely your letter will be printed!
