Letters to the Editor are your chance to speak your mind and be heard

Written by on August 15, 2012 in Blogs - 12 Comments

We want your letters. We want to hear your positions on the news we cover—outdoor seating in Fell’s Point, low-income and subsidized housing in O’Donnell Heights, new condominiums in the old Patterson Middle School building, and calls for a polystyrene ban and plastic bag tax, to name a few.

We want to hear your positions on the news we miss—we haven’t written about the parking situation near the Can Company in Canton, but someone must have something to say about it.

The Baltimore Grand Prix is quickly coming up. Are you looking forward to the spectacle and predicting a boost in the local economy, or are you dreading the road closures, crowds, and traffic?

We also want to hear from you that we are doing an excellent job, but we will pay close attention when you criticize us.

We write articles on the news, but we don’t give our own opinions. Sometimes we give glimpses of your opinions in the form of a quote or paraphrase, but we can’t go too much into depth or speak to the history behind those opinions.

You can. Send your letters by email to editor@baltimoreguide.com, with the word “letter” as the first word in the subject. Or, send them by snail mail to Editor, The Baltimore Guide, 526 S. Conkling St., Baltimore, MD 21224.

Try to keep your letter relatively short, under 300 words.

Please sign your full name, and expect it to be printed.

Please give us contact information—phone number or email address—so that we can reach you if we have a question or to verify that you did in fact write the letter we received in your name.

We may lightly edit your letter for spelling, grammar and clarity.

    Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of
    spam responses? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.

    Dear Editor,
    This is serious stuff. We simply cannot allow those evil Republicans to take back the White House this November. Just think of the consequences: Roe V. Wade will be overturned by a conservative-packed Supreme Court, which will mean 1.3 million less abortions performed every year, paid for with taxpayer dollars. Unemployment might actually drop down to a measly 4%. The national debt could be reduced by five trillion dollars, and gas prices would be at $2.50 a gallon; you know, like they were in those horrible ‘Bush’ years…well, never mind.

    Welfare and food stamp recipients will fall below 50 million; and they’ll actually have to (gulp!) work for their benefits, thanks to a president Romney. Naturally, the borders will become more secure. Heck, they might even put up that darn fence, after all. Then how will all those illegal aliens – I mean new Democrats – ever get here to vote? And who’s going to cut Nancy Pelosi’s lawn and wash Senator John Kerry’s yacht…his wife?

    And we came so close to finally getting ‘God’ out of our Platform at the convention and making sure that Jerusalem will never be the Capitol of Israel. You heard it! Bill Clinton was cheered, and God actually got booed off the stage by a clear majority of delegates. Never mind the fact that we ultimately had to leave Him in; you know, to appease those crazy Catholics and insufferable Jews. But we did manage, however, to redefine ‘marriage’ to include gays, lesbians, and, well…whatever.

    Sadly, ya’ll, we’ll have to send Ol’ Joe Biden back to the plantation, along with his hair-plugs and chains. Michelle will never have a second chance to be proud of her country. And worst of all…Barack Hussein Obama might actually have to find himself a real job.
