So a letter to the editor that I submitted to The Tampa Tribune over a week ago finally got published today!
The letter… (last one on the page – “Waste of Public Money”)
The editorial that I wrote concerning…
Protecting Community Standards
And finally, the original article that got me all riled up…
Risque Business Dooms Strip Club
It kind of caught me off guard when I saw it because the original article that I was writing about appeared in last Saturday’s paper – think Sept. 6th – so it didn’t really make sense to me for them to publish it long after everyone would’ve forgotten what the original argument was, but whatever. Maybe they ran out of letters arguing about campaigning being too personal this year or Sarah Palin doing a fine job of spreading God’s love of war and hockey and a woman’s right to choice in all things non-abortion-related, but either way, even if nobody remembers the first article, it’s always fun to see your name in print. 🙂
Final Thought: So if I’m one of those guys who writes letters to the editor NOW, what am I going to turn INTO twenty or thirty years from now?!
