The SacBee Does The Freddy

The Sacramento Bee published my letter yesterday about removing the Klamath Dams. Hooray! I realized a couple days ago the letter was probably too long for that paper. They limit letters to 150 words, as opposed to the 200 the Press- Democrat accepts. Forgot about that but they fixed it and, by removing the last sentence, cut the letter from 165 words to 145. Nicely done.

Funny thing about those letters to the editor (LTE). One of the reasons I started blogging was to improve my letter writing skills so I could fire off a decent LTE in a few hours as opposed to days. Not sure I've improved what little skill I had but I hardly ever send letters to the editor anymore since I started this blog.
