So, about that letter. Turns out that the Tribune considers letters to the editor on political topics to be, in essence, political ads, which means they charge money to publish them. I'm torn between the desire to change minds and the principle "never pay to be published."

Central to that question, of course, is the question of whether a Columbia paper is really the best place for a piece of writing designed to change the minds of people inclined to vote in favor of Amendment Two. I'm stuck. What do you guys think?
